program: storefront lab

Another interesting precedent that I have just discovered in SF, the Storefront Lab, which appears to be spearheaded by David Baker, works from the premise that the storefront is important architecturally as a site for urban community engagement. As a threshold to the public realm, the diversity of urban storefronts seeks to engage the public in the changing urban fabric. The storefront lab takes this concept even further, explicitly programmed for temporary events “lasting from one day to a month.” It is intentionally vaguely programmed to allow for diversity, but includes such things as events, lectures, art installations, etc.
