          2004 Student Awards Jury Comments

The goal of this project was to design a central park for downtown Los Angeles which can help to transform the city into a more livable and viable place. The park design aims to accomplish three goals. First, the park will serve as a linkage of the various buildings, landmarks and districts within the city. Second, the park will make people the priority. Right now, the city is designed for cars. To make people a priority, the park must be a pedestrian friendly, walkable space. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the park will improve the quality of life for all who live, work, and visit downtown Los Angeles, which is essential for the health and future growth of the city.
