Architectural Record: MLA and OMA to Design New Park in Downtown L.A.
The City of Los Angeles has selected a team of architects led by OMA and local firm Mia Lehrer + Associates (MLA) to design a new public park downtown. The park, which is slated to open in 2019, will be named “FAB Park” after its location on the intersection of First and Broadway.
According to a statement from OMA, the park design will “incorporate themes of food, art, and land,” promising a canopy of oak and sycamore trees as well as a two-level restaurant with casual service on the first level and more upscale dining on the second. "Each level activates diverse experiences ranging from café to test kitchen to amphitheater seating," said OMA partner Jason Long. The elements of the park will be organized around a central plaza (or “gallery”) for markets and community events.
