Dubbed the By and Large Studio, the structure is being built from recycled shipping containers to create a 13,726-square-foot exhibit space.
The documents filed only refer to the barge docked in San Francisco, though they should apply to the similar barge By and Large, LLC has docked in Portland, Me., as well.
The vessels are aimed at raising awareness about the history and goods associated with the harbors they’ll be docked in. The space also can be used by local organizations to engage with customers and guests, according to the documents.
By and Large notes that it should be a “surprising environment” that inspires conversation.
