HYPERBOULDER_ A creative approach to intervene in urban river landscape

The various sports of LA River’s restorative experiments in recent years have brought it a new kind of experience and attention. Based on these conditions and the responsiveness to the multi-scale landscape, the new improved technology based on the concept of “Hypernature” will bring regeneration to the downtown-port of the LA River and a paradigm of urban river-way elastic landscape. Research on new technologies will produce a new assemblage, HyperBoulder, which are full of potential and flexibility. Variations resulting from the adaptation of new assemblies to different sites and species will also be of great help in improving the downtown portion of the LA River landscape in the future.
