The Union Loop – Connecting Streets for People
Visionary Design Concept
SWA Summer Student Program Internship
Studying the Los Angeles Union Station and surrounding areas, I was struck by the lack of pedestrian connectivity and the poor amenities and experiences offered along streets that have become thoroughfares for cars more than places for people. My idea of a Union Loop to connect the neighborhoods around the station aims to establish a backbone route for street reconfiguration, artistic intervention and public program that would develop over time, and revive the streets as places in themselves.
