A Nexus for Nature, Food, and Art
A new type of destination for downtown LA that celebrates the City’s diversity and promotes civic engagement through highly versatile spaces to experience art, enjoy food and revel in its unique urban/park setting. The park has a central plaza surrounded by an iconic and playful arrangement of sculpted canopies intermixed among mature Oak and Sycamore trees that respect the natural environments of Southern California.
The park is both low maintenance and achieves “net-zero” efficiency in water and energy use by incorporating park-widefeatures such as solar collection, on-site stormwater filtration/infiltration.
The park’s restaurant is sculpted to create a diverse set of protected outdoor spaces, a main dining area with a vista over the park and an edible roof garden that reflects the park’s playful landscape. The multi-sided building facilitates two distinct levels of service: quick and casual on the ground, refined and elegant above.
