Description   The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts expresses the diversity of race and culture of its locale, and serves as a central facility for local citizen's cultural activities in San Francisco. The facility houses an art center with a un-open program including both exhibition and education. On the exterior, the building is designed to have a light facade to avoid giving the impression of monumentality. Based on the image of a ship coming from San Francisco, the building's horizontality, lightness, and sense of motion invite nautical associations, and suggest the fantasy and excitement that can be experienced inside the building.
