federal building

The new San Francisco federal building opens tomorrow, and there are a few details I like very much.

There's a sky garden on the 11th floor that overlooks SOMA, and is open to the public behind a security checkpoint:

The exterior has a nice, jagged look to it, with lots of energy-saving skin features:

The elevators only stop on every 3rd floor, "to improve worker health by nudging them to use stairways - and also create crossroads where employees run onto each other, since each three-story segment includes a lobby with art and a viewing platform."
