LATHAM SQUARE PILOT PLAZA

Associate Designer + project manager with Rebar

Latham Square Pilot Plaza reimagined downtown Oakland's notion of public space. Installed for 1 year, this plaza tested out a city's efforts to construct viable solutions for a more pedestrian and bike friendly in a bustling, downtown business corridor. Modular greenspace and reconfigurable urban furniture made of repurposed city infrastructure and salvaged wood defined this pilot plaza's ability to be rearranged to accommodate a variety of events such from daily lunch breaks for city workers to fashion shows, live music, and a traveling library.
