GRAND PARK N.Y.E.L.A. 2019
As part of yU+co’s ongoing determination to create meaningful work that has a positive impact on society the design studio along with Grand Park and the Music Center reached out to elementary schools across LA County to ask their 5th grade students what was their dream for their city. The result was “Dreaming LA”, Los Angeles’ massive outdoor 2019 New Year’s Eve Celebration at Grand Park, highlighted by our large-scale architectural projection mapping show on the historic 32-story City Hall building.
The goal of the “Dreaming LA” project was to foster a sense of community for all Angelenos through the drawings, essays and poems of our future leaders. The students’ ideas ranged from whimsical to visionary— everything from a future L.A. of love and inclusion, to a smorgasbord of burgers and tacos, and even visions of futuristic transportation. Motivated by the children’s sentiment and using their drawings and words as inspiration, yU+co projected a hopeful, imaginative and inspiring vision for the future of Los Angeles.
