Just as Downtown Los Angeles is becoming one of the most vibrant and exciting urban centers in America, our goal is for Pershing Square to be one of the top destinations in Southern California.
In September we invited design firms from around the world to compete to be selected as our design partner in re-envisioning Pershing Square, Los Angeles’ oldest park in the heart of DTLA, into the city’s town square. According to our Executive Director: “Their challenge isn’t to win awards; it’s to win over hearts. More than anything else, these groups need to focus on the experiences their design will inspire and the memories the Square will create.”
On April 28, 2016, the 4 finalists for the Pershing Square Renew design competition presented their proposals for re-invisioning Pershing Square. Watch the finalists live presentations here:
