The School of the arts began as an exploration of ‘unaccepted streets’, conditions in which had been abandoned by the city of San Francisco for various reasons – grades were too steep, they had been erased by infrastructure – and were left as voids and ghosts in the landscape. These provided opportunities for intervention.  A GIS analysis showed the correlation between existing schools and high speed motorways.  The resultant school project was also an attempt to slow motorists through awareness and other devices.
