The San Francisco Bay Area has long been a hotbed of cultural significance in art, film, and especially music. My project seeks to celebrate the themes and identity of three music scenes that have had a significant role in shaping the bay’s collective culture.

Primary Perspectives

Perspective of the elevated walkway above Roland Green—named after the Roland-TR808 drum machine that was incredibly important to foundational rap music production.

Perspective of the center plaza of the Punk Plaza. The featured sculpture is an homage to influential San Francisco punk band Dead Kennedys and their embrace of anti-consumerism and absurdist imagery featured in their music. The sculpture is representative of anti-consumerism in that non-essential and virtually useless consumer products like Jell-O and its advertising are a burden to the consumer.

Perspective view of the band shell and concert bowl, used for community events, concerts, and gatherings. It is the modern incarnation of reintroducing live music to the Panhandle which used to host locally-promoted concerts from the likes of the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, and Jefferson Airplane.

ABOUT ME

My name is Jacob Scally and I am a graduating fifth-year landscape architecture student. What excites me most as a landscape architect is our ability to shape collective and individual experiences through inventive approaches that seek to offer contemporary solutions to our contemporary problems. To me, the greatest gift architecture and design can give is an outlet to express the abstract in a way that is significant to us or collective culture.
