The Oakland Museum of California is located in downtown Oakland, California, and was opened to the public in 1969. It is a museum and a large public space at the same time; a hybridized condition of planting on str
ucture. Designed by architect Kevin Roche and landscape architect Dan Kiley, the museum has three levels of open space and galleries, organized around a central yard space. Almost 2500 m2 of green space are punctuated by broad stairs. Innovative solutions were needed to support the unprecedented and extensive planting on structure and to provide adequate drainage. The museum was designed to function as a public space and is unusually innovative in its combination of public and private space and architecture and landscape spaces.
