The project was to review and create an urban forest in MacArthur Park. Using sweep conditions as a concept, I started by playing with different sweep elements to generate the form. The main objective is that the sweep conditions were going to be differentiated based on different kind of contour signatures that eventually will create different environmental conditions and microclimates along the site.
