The SWA/Morphosis team, in partnership with Cecilia Estolano of ELP, Dan Biederman of BRV, Buro Happold, Sam Schwartz Engineering, and Walker Parking, reimagined the heart of downtown Los Angeles during a eight-month design competition.
The proposal reasserts Pershing Square as a dynamic, living platform that animates the urban center and advances Los Angeles as a vibrant cultural capital and global leader in sustainability. Practical concerns tackled by the design team included reorganizing below-grade parking, connecting the site to public transit, locating bike share hubs, and innovative infrastructure, such as purple pipe greywater recycling through reciprocal wetlands.

Distinct Southern California ecologies lie at the base of a solar-powered hydroponic urban farming tower. The park provides the vital park elements that everyone enjoys, while advancing a future of economic and ecological sustainability.
