Anyone who has been to Los Angeles knows the city could use more green space, and now it seems Brooks + Scarpa agrees. The urban design firm has unveiled their vision for the city’s future FAB (First and Broadway) Civic Center Park, which includes a two-acre tree-filled expanse and an events center covered with undulating strips of green turf.

The competition, which is part of the city’s 50 Parks Initiative, encouraged proposals for the FAB Civic Center Park, a $12 million public park slated for First and Broadway in Downtown LA, across the street from Los Angeles City Hall. In addition to Brooks + Scarpa, AECOM, Eric Owen Moss, and Mia Lehrer + Associates submitted designs.

According to Brooks + Scarpa, their design could energize the surrounding neighborhood: “the city has a unique opportunity to design and construct an iconic park project in the Los Angeles Civic Center, that will augment the adjacent Grand Park, incorporate uses that bring life to the area (such as restaurant and public art installation).”
