Four teams have been chosen to move on to the second stage of the Pershing Square Renew competition. Aiming to transform downtown Los Angeles' oldest park, the finalists will now refine their schematic proposals in preparation of a second review in March 2016. The winning scheme will potentially be the five-acre park's sixth iteration, replacing Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta and landscape architect Laurie Olincurrent design that first opened in 1994.
The four teams and their preliminary ideas, include:
SWA with Morphosis
James Corner Field Operations with Frederick Fisher & Partners
