Buchanan Mall

Exploratorium Partners with Green Streets to Revitalize Buchanan Mall

We’re excited to announce that the Exploratorium’s Studio for Public Spaces will be joining Green Streets, Citizen Film, the Trust for Public Land, San Francisco Rec & Park and members of the Western Addition community to support the revitalization of the Buchanan Mall.

This spring and summer, the Studio for Public Spaces will support the design and fabrication of a community-supported built improvement that aims to enhance and activate the Buchanan Mall open space. Buchanan Mall, located between Eddy Street and Grove in the Western Addition, runs adjacent to the Hayes and Plaza East communities that Green Streets serves, as well as the African-American Arts and Culture Center and Rosa Parks Senior Center.

The Studio for Public Spaces works in the public realm to create exhibits and environments that encourage play, exploration, creativity, and social connection. The Studio for Public Spaces is an initiative of the Exploratorium, a museum dedicated to educational equity.
