“Radical or not, flat, green, open and shaded places for people to gather are precisely what we need more of in Los Angeles… Let me go on record, then, as supporting it: In a city as lacking in attractive and accessible park space as Los Angeles the last place we should be banning lawns is in the civic realm.” — Christopher Hawthorne of Los Angeles Times

“The winning scheme, if built and ultimately successful, would cement Downtown L.A.’s status as one of the city’s distinct and vital neighborhoods.” —The Architect’s Newspaper

“There is something that is wonderfully kind of clear about it, and it is elegant.”  –Frances Anderton, host of DnA: Design & Architecture on KCRW

“This plan comes closest to realizing the holy grail of good public squares, which is providing people a place to stage their own programs, spontaneously and unpredictably, without micromanagement by designers.” –Wade Graham in Los Angeles Times

“If we can support rich guys who want to show off their art collections, we can certainly get this cash together to make L.A.’s original park vibrant for the people again.” –Dennis Romero of LA Weekly
