Volume is teaming up with SWA to realize a 20+ year-old dream of creating a new memorial for activist Harvey Milk. Located in the heart of the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco, Harvey Milk Plaza will be transformed into a bustling hub of hope and action. As Milk himself said, “Hope will never be silent,” and nor will this revamped plaza.
The existing site is challenging, with multiple grade levels, public and private adjacencies, all sitting atop a MUNI station, to boot! Today, most people pass through the plaza without stopping. In the future, it will be a destination for locals and out-of-town visitors alike. A place of gathering for both reflection and action. Just as Harvey would have wanted.
