PEEL 27 (Pier 27 international cruise ship terminal)
San Francisco, CA
In collaboration with Jeremy Luebker, BArch '12, MS '13
Peel 27 is a design proposal for the international cruise ship terminal on Pier 27, also serving other programmatic elements, based upon successful local San Franciscan commercial landmarks, such as the Ferry Terminal and Fisherman’s Wharf’s. The design uses the operational term of “peel” both on the macro and micro scale of the project to deploy different typologies which helped derive programmatic, structural, and systemic elements. On the macro level of “peel,” the artificial landscape is “peeled” up to lift the public on the same level as the ship, celebrating the idea of welcome and farewell to create a dialectic with the static and dynamic aspects of the terminal and the ship, respectively.
