The newly constructed Portsmouth Square restroom building (opened in February) received an Honor Award from the Concrete Masonry Association (cmacn.org) for its design using concrete masonry units.
The Portsmouth Square restroom building was designed by Hamilton Aitken Architects for the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department through a community design process. The unique curving roof and open pavilion is an interpretation of traditional Chinese architecture. Concrete masonry was selected for its durability, maintainability and attractive design options.
