Summary

This new 16-acre park in downtown Los Angeles serves to unify multiple cultural institutions in the city’s Civic Center and has quickly transformed this previosuly underutilized area into a vibrant public space. Grand Park provides residents with much needed outdoor recreation options including an event lawn and performance stage. SP&CO’s work scope includes branding, graphics and amenities such as a self guided “Floristic Regions” planting exhibit within the community based gardens. These amenities provide an identity as well as a cultural richness to the park. The illuminated entrance totems proudly offer their message in a site specific twenty six languages: “the park for everyone.”
