PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

High above the city streets on the ninth-floor observation level of the de Young Museum's Hamon Tower in Golden Gate Park, a stunning mural displays a satellite view of San Francisco, delighting visitors with a rare photographic image of the city's unique topography. The mural's presence at the top floor reflects the twisting tower's alignment in its upper reaches with the street grid outside the park. Using maps of the park and the city, the de Young's architects, Herzog & de Meuron, achieved their goal of relating the museum building to the immediate context of Golden Gate Park, to the larger context of the San Francisco city street grid, and to regional landmarks such as the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge and the downtown skyline. Printed on heavy-weight paper. Measures 41 x 42 in.
