Gallery: Students Re-Envision Los Angeles’ Ports O’Call for the Julius ...

 
The 8 schools that participated included the Art Center College of Design; California State Polytechnic University, Pomona; California State University, Long Beach; Otis College of Art and Design; Southern California Institute of Architecture; University of California, Los Angeles; University of Southern California; Woodbury University.

Each of the projects submitted by the students required the integration of a grandiose waterfront promenade and bike path, a minimum three acre park—dubbed the Fisherman’s Park—with integrated water features and amphitheater, and a connection with the Red Car Trolley system that currently provides public transportation to the area. The redevelopment is a real-life project in the making, and the Port of LA has set aside more than $1 billion to re-envision and complete a master plan for the area. An official Request for Proposals is set to be released before summer’s end.

Juror, Henry N. Cobb, FAIA, (founding partner of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners) notes that the winning design was “…conceptual, imaginative and exceptionally well-resolved for a three day design charette. The rest… are brilliant in their own way.” We hope that inspiration can be taken from the students projects to create a green sustainable redevelopment of the Port of Los Angeles and Ports O’Call!
