San Jose has worked for decades to establish its downtown as a vibrant, active center for the Silicon Valley. The Tech Museum of Innovation, in the heart of this downtown, is now embarking on a new project with its partners to build on recent momentum and catalyze new efforts towards this goal.
Maryanna Rogers, The Tech’s director of innovation, and Gehl Studio, the renowned global firm focusing on people-centered urban design, are working to reimagine City Hall Plaza — how it can engage and inspire residents and employees, bring communities together, and infuse innovation into San Jose government. With Knight Foundation’s support, we hope to use this project as a springboard to create a stronger sense of place all over San Jose.
Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts. We believe that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged.
