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

 
We hope that inspiration can be taken from the students projects and that the resulting redevelopment of the LA Ports and Port-of-Call is done so the most sustainable way possible while creating lots of open space and parkland for visitors and residents.

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!
