What if South Park Had a Big Park Across From Staples Center?

New, 88 comments

USC landscape architecture professor (and principal at Office of Outdoor Research) Alexander Robinson sent us these renderings from a graduate level studio he taught last year--he asked students to propose "a real civic park for South Park" on the surface parking lots that sit across Figueroa from the Staples Center. Besides a whole lot of turf on the proposed Farmers Field, South Park's greenest aspirations are for a 0.18-acre park on South Hope St. (although the new Convention Center plans do call for a greening of Gilbert Lindsay Plaza just south of Staples), so this is pretty wild and exciting stuff.
