Keeping Streets Safe and Beautiful

San Francisco’s busy Powell Street is safer thanks to this beautifully designed stainless steel planter.  Powell Street is crowded with tourists but to keep them from easily crossing the street and perhaps getting hit by traffic and cable cars, this long planter along the curb encourages them to stay on the sidewalk and walk to the intersection.  The edge is just wide enough to allow people to perch to eat their lunch or chat with friends, but sufficiently uncomfortable to discourage loitering.
