San Francisco’s newest parklet, designed by YAX youth

In 2017, led by faculty architect Kali Gordon and John O’Connell High School Construction Instructor Chris Wood, our architecture firm students developed an innovative parklet design utilizing reclaimed cedar and conduit pipes for an open and green design.

The parklet officially opened on December 11, 2017 – visit it on the corner of 20th and Folsom, in front of John O’Connell Technical High School!

This project was supported by SF Planning, Umpqua Bank, California Arts Council, and Grants for the Arts SF Neighborhood Arts Collaborative.
