This thesis is a proposal for a large contemporary art museum on the Presidio Parade Grounds in San Francisco, California. The site is small and historic, thus my solution was to build primarily underground. Through my exploration of designing a subterranean art museum I addressed the challenges of natural lighting, circulation, and curation. The following images document the result of my studies.
