The San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) has transformed a historic pier shed at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture into a 67,000-square-foot hub for artist studios and public engagement. Opening for Fall 2017, this new waterfront campus complements SFAI’s iconic Chestnut Street campus in nearby Russian Hill, combining extraordinary studio facilities for working artists with exhibition and presentation spaces that invite intimate experiences with the creative process. Take an exclusive architectural tour with Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects and Heather Hickman Holland, Associate Vice President for Operations & Facilities, San Francisco Art Institute, to go in-depth on the building’s restoration and transformation — conducted in partnership with the National Park Service, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and State Historic Preservation Office — which includes a new mezzanine level, integrated sustainable building systems, and the largest solar panel array on any National Park Service building.
