Mission Bay At Night (Cont.) – this phase finalizes the site plan and focuses on UCSD’s Wetland Education & Research Center (WERC).
An optical illusion. Eight various perspectives organized by a single vanishing point.

The focus of this North Mission Bay design concentrates on creating a balance between day and night activities. A design that supports the extended use of the park after sunset. By providing an integrated and adaptive approach it establishes a safe environment for the region to roam about after sunset.
A structured promenade much like the linear walks found in Italian plazas (passaggiata) will establish the site as the bay’s landmark. Providing a couple of restaurants that take advantage of the bays’s beautiful views will further support nighttime activity. Small shops will accommodate all visitors seeking quick snacks and bike rentals. The addition of sports fields will further encourage the community to remain active all day long.
