Description: SWA and John Kaliski Architects are providing landscape architectural and urban design services and advice to the Park 101 Phase 3 study, led by ELP Advisors. The study’s goal is to advance the project from the planning phase to the project implementation phase. SWA is an advisor on programming, design options, development, density, and managing the park’s interaction with pedestrians and vehicles on surrounding streets.

This project has been a truly collaborative and multi-disciplinary effort. Cap parks are increasingly seen as the future of green space in urban areas. SWA’s experience with on-structure parks in Asia has imparted important lessons for the future of urban parks and density in Los Angeles.
