C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.

San Francisco, California, 2020

This project will provide a new home for the C.G. Jung Institute. The building provides for a number of functions: training for emerging psychotherapists, psychotherapy services for the general public, event space for large meetings and dinners, a library, and office space.  In addition, the building will house the Archive for Research in Archetypal  Symbolism. An atrium brings natural light and air into the urban setting and links all three floors from ground to sky.

The façade, designed in collaboration artist Amy Trachtenberg, is rendered in glazed brick and evokes associations to the natural world. The variegated and soft green hues with turquoise accents speak to earth and flora, sea and sky. The six columns are individually articulated by patterns in white tile reflective of the tree of life motif and abstracted elements that appear in folk art, carpets and textiles universally.

The project will commence construction in the Fall of 2019.
