The 2019 National Planning Conference will take place from April 13th through April 16th in San Francisco. Twelve individuals from various SOM offices will speak on a variety of topics, from designing downtown San Francisco to the future of public spaces.
The April 2018 issue of A+U, a monthly English/Japanese language magazine about architecture and urbanism, features multiple SOM-designed projects and contributions from SOM architects and planners. The issue is titled "San Francisco Urban Transformations."
On June 29th, 2017, SOM's Craig W. Hartman will speak at an event titled "Transforming SF: The Future of the City." Hartman and other panelists will discuss various projects in San Francisco, including the development of Treasure Island, for which SOM designed a master plan.
The Architect's Newspaper reports on development plans for Treasure Island, a man-made island in the San Francisco Bay. In conjunction with master plans by SOM and Perkins+Will, the city of San Francisco has developed an arts-focused master plan for the island.
