Libeskind named this creation the “yud,” after the Hebrew letter
The Yud is the smallest letter, the “atom of the language,” the minor gesture from which the entire language grew
It stands for the humility of Moses
Was Moses humble?
A man whose gesture parted the Red Sea…this man was humble.
Post-Industrial Waterfronts, San Francisco: Hunters Point Shipyard, Mission Bay Design for Development, Mission Rock, & Treasure Island Master Plan + Urban Design
Urban edges where the city meets the water have often been closed to the public, relegated to industrial uses, and condemned over time to become areas of urban decay, pollution and dereliction. As cities evolve and industry relocates, post-industrial urban waterfronts can become communal meeting places, centers for arts and entertainment, focal points for celebration and inspiration. As designers and planners, we delight in the unique potentials waterfronts and buildings offer, and bring to them creativity, contemporary design and civic identity.
