In 2007, artists Steve Lambert and Packard Jennings asked architects, city planners, and transportation engineers: "What would you do if you didn't have to worry about budgets, bureacracy, politics, or physics?"
Mulling over these conversations, Lambert and Jennings reimagined San Francisco as a city of roller coasters, wildlife preserves, underground libraries, health clubs installed inside BART cars, and commuter zip lines across San Francisco Bay.
The artists created a series of six giant posters (6 ft. by 4 ft.) for the San Francisco Arts Commission's Art on Market Street Program. They called the series "Wish You Were Here! Postcards From Our Awesome Future." Small prints from the series are available; for ordering info, sign up on Lambert's mailing list.
