Market Street Prototyping Festival Banner

Chosen based on their “creativity, sense of community, potential to make Market Street a more vibrant public space and ability to identify Market Street as uniquely San Francisco,” the fifty (50) teams which will each receive a $2,000 stipend to prototype their ideas for San Francisco’s Market Street Prototyping Festival have been selected.

The selected projects include ideas for “an urban living room, a revolving “Zen door,” interactive light installations, wayfinding signage to boost the walkability of the City, and a visual and oral exploration of San Francisco’s forgotten waterways.”

Originally scheduled to be held earlier this month, the festival to showcase the prototypes will now be held from April 9th-11th, 2015 on Market Street’s sidewalks from the Embarcadero to Van Ness.

After the festival, any number of the teams could be selected to work with the city to build out their ideas to become permanent, or semi-permanent, fixtures of Market Street and beyond.
