Americans today are seeking to retain their traditional relationship to the land and their historic landscape while balancing simultaneous demands for increased density, more amenities, greater efficiency, and an ever-expanding job market. The Hills at Vallco offers a paradigm shifting solution: that which cannot be located side by side, can be combined vertically in layers. This project proposes to create a 30-acre public park over a 50-acre development of buildings, streets, and public civic squares. The public landscape of Vallco is composed of tree lined streets, two public squares, and an extensive roof park with a variety of outdoor amenities. The roof park incorporates paths for walking and jogging, a playground, orchards and a vineyard, along with a unique performance space, and at the same time, quieter areas, some constituting native habitat for the native flora and fauna of the bay area.
