Project Description

Planning is in progress for a multistory parking structure with 1,400 staff parking spaces for a rapidly expanding MLK Medical campus. The artwork there will become a landmark for Willowbrook as well as the MLK Medical Campus. The project goal is to create a distinct visual statement that relates well to the structure and the landsccape design without being solely architectural enhancement or elevated design. The artwork will mitigate the scale of the parking garage to the streetscape, strengthen the relationship between the campus and the neighborhood, go beyond obvious themes and assumptions about the community, and appeal to the diverse group that will come into contact with it.
