Expansion of Units in Existing Buildings
San Francisco is architecturally a conservative city which has also intention for expansion. The city administration is interested and flexible in applying the ideas and strategies that liven the city. In this thesis, I am targeting to look for urban strategies that can exploit the spatial opportunities among the towers in downtown. As invention of elevator expand the cityscape vertically, what other technique can expand the city in the void spaces among the towers? How the city can expand in other dimensions which can fulfill the intention of livening the city through better connectivity?
