Our latest project with Matthew Geller has been on the server for a while but is now out for final pricing.  Three columns that mimic the infrastructure in the nearby WWII shipyards hold up a parametrically optimized waffle grid roof and suspend a 12' communal swing.  It will occupy a hillside overlooking San Francisco Bay looking north toward the Bay Bridge.
