Phantom Coast Reception: Surface Design & Harvard GSD Envision the Waterfront

Join the Port of San Francisco and Surface Design as we celebrate the work of Harvard University's Graduate School of Design students and their exploration of the imaginative potential of the Embarcadero Seawall as both innovative infrastructure and engaging public space.

In an age where addressing change is a tenet of meaningful public open space and infrastructure design, the Embarcadero Seawall invites an innovative strategy for strengthening and adapting San Francisco's waterfront.

Learn more about the projects, hear from the Surface Design team, and enjoy light refreshments at Pier 1.
