Meandering Marina Architecture
Pier 27 by Vidhi Patel Explores the Inconsistency of Circulation

The way that people move around a building is always prescribed, in some instances more so than others. The waterfront development at Pier 27 by Vidhi Patel is a project that explores how flexibility can be introduced into the circulation of a structure, given that many elements of the project would need to be fixed in place.

Of course, when observing the proposed designs from a bird’s-eye view, you’ll gather that this edifice is not an expansive open-plan premises that allows its visitors to wander freely in every direction. It is carved in a sharp and winding shape along the San Franciscan wharf, requiring people to conform to its zigzagging trajectory.

But there is actually some unexpected freedom to moving through the site of Pier 27 by Vidhi Patel. Beneath the sweeping sail-like roof, pedestrians can transition between enclosures, covered areas and exposed landscapes throughout the length of the building.
