Ken Smith of New York (that may be his full name) has been awarded the prize of the day - lead design job for the OC's new Great Park, which we mentioned earlier today. Smith's imaginative design includes orange hot air balloons (imagined above) that will serve as park icons and will let people ride up in the air to spit on other park goers - that's what we would do. Visitors will also be able to borrow or rent bright orange bicycles to tool around the park on. As provided by Land+Living, you can download the park specifics here (Doc1) and here (Doc 2), both PDFs.
