The LA River exemplifies the precarious relation between nature and man. After a series of disastrous floods, the river was channelized in the 1930s by The Unites States Army Corps of Engineers. The once free-flowing river now exists as a fully concrete gray channel.
While the human-intervention eliminated The LA River’s natural beauty, the concrete stretch went on to play an unexpected role culturally. It was included in many iconic Hollywood features and became a popular hangout for the youth of the city.
There is now a large voice for the restoration of The LA River to a version of its original self. This would include the creation of parks, wildlife habitats and the mass removal of concrete.

We were inspired by this moment in history for The LA River. It is currently in an extended state of “in-between”, which we wanted to capture.
Our Los Angeles design replicates the shape of the base of the channelized river.
