LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE 202: WINTER 2014
The idea that the Los Angeles River could be one large linear park cutting through the city has captured the imagination of designers worldwide. For this reason, and because of its special local significance to Cal Poly Pomona, the 2014 sophomore Landscape Architecture class has created 51+ propositions for the River.
Challenged to change current perceptions of the River, we strove to further integrate individuals and surrounding communities WHILE INVITING VARIOUS FORMS OF INTERACTION WITH IT. OUR PROPOSITIONS REFLECT THIS POTENTIAL FOR CHANGE. This blog represents a summary of those final proposals. It culminated with a gallery exhibition and final review by school professors, guest critics and soon-to-graduate students.
We were required to collaborate within and across class sections as well work individually. Each student developed a design proposition for their assigned, 1-mile segment of the river. A few students worked on propositions involving an entire zone, i.e. miles 1-17. A Los Angeles River model was developed in parallel with the assignment and details can be viewed on the River Model Page
PLEASE EXPLORE OUR PROPOSITIONS, COMMENT, MAKE SUGGESTIONS – ALL CONSTRUCTIVE CRITIQUE AND FEEDBACK IS WELCOME!
THANK YOU AND ENJOY.
