Los Angeles Civic Park Conceived As Urban Core

Rios Clementi Hale Studios’ design for the new Los Angeles Civic Park will result in a transformational urban space in the tradition of the world’s great city parks. Unifying a 12-acre linear site across four blocks in the heart of downtown Los Angeles’ civic and cultural centre, Civic Park is envisioned as an iconic destination celebrating the city’s multicultural and horticultural diversity. It is part of the larger Grand Avenue Plan to revitalise the entire area. The project broke ground on July 15, 2010.

New Transit Hub at Bob Hope Airport

A large $120-million transit center that would combine bus, train and rental car traffic into one hub at Bob Hope Airport took a step closer to reality Tuesday after the Burbank City Council voted 4 to 1 to settle a number of land-use issues. The council asked officials to come back with more fine-tuned landscaping proposals and a tighter agreement requiring that the land be used only for a transit center. Airport representatives said it represented a major step forward for the massive project.

The project includes room for 14 buses with a transit lounge and a new parking structure for airport patrons, an elevated pedestrian bridge over Empire Avenue to connect to the parking lot, a new paved parking lot currently used by airport employees and patrons that will have more spaces, and solar panels covering the soon-to-be facility to not only supplement the center's energy consumption, but eventually contribute to the city's power grid.

Mosstika: Living Wall

Succulent Living Wall in Green Spaces, Brooklyn 2009Mosstika is the studio of Edina Tokodi, a hungarian artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York who
creates artwork from plants. As the name suggests Mosstika works with the green plant material known as moss. For her artwork, Tokodi uses the growing material to create silhouettes and other designs that she often installs on the street. Her latest project moves in a new direction, integrating a wood frame and irrigation system to create a living wall. The project was installed in Brooklyn and features a large wooden frame that is layered over a field of green succulent plants. The effect creates an image of a woman when viewed from afar. Up close, you can see the plant material, which is ideal for growing on a vertical surface.

Participants to the Call for Ideas submitted conceptual designs, art, studies, inventions, city plans, videos and other creative solutions revolving around the topic of high-speed rail, its integration into the design of cities and visions of a future more sustainable, pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented and less reliant on automobiles. Over 100 works were received, including invited submissions from renowned architects MVRDV, Eric Owen Moss, Topotek1, and Pritzker Prize laureates Thom Mayne, Sir Norman Foster, and Zaha Hadid.
