West 8 one of the three finalists for Fort Mason, San Francisco

Three finalists – West 8, Bruner/Cott and AMP Arquitectos – were selected from twenty invited firms to consider an enhanced plan for the Fort Mason Center Campus. Their entries will be evaluated on design merit and the positive impact the proposal will have on the center to select a winner for the competition.

The Fort Mason Center design competition is seeking creative and practical design concepts to further enliven and integrate the site. The design should enable Fort Mason Center to realize its full potential, both as a vital and stimulating location for arts and culture, and as an attractive destination for enjoyment of the site.

The ideas for the competition for the Fort Mason Center are online at: http://www.fortmason.org/aboutus/design-competition; they also are on display daily till Dec. 31 in the lobby of FMC Building D.
