THE SACRAMENTO MALL, Sacramento, CA
Design to revitalize the existing capitol mall to create a strong civic identity for the capital of California. Design includes a 500 foot iconic sculptural tower to form the gateway on the horizon. In addition, by reducing the roadways and eliminating all asphalt surfaces, we emphasized the strong axial relationship to the capitol on the mall and increased pedestrian traffic. ca introduced interstitial gardens and required adjacent open spaces and available rooftops to become urban parks. A walking timeline of cultural and historic events was also proposed along the walkways.
