Lawrence Halprin - Reconnecting the Heart of Los Angeles

Location: Bunker Hill 
Time: 1:00 PM

Explore how his iconic designs are connected, and learn about how these open urban spaces foster art, community, and a connection with nature.

This tour focuses on the four Halprin designs that make up the Los Angeles Open Space Network. The Network was an ambitious plan to connect downtown Los Angeles through the use of open landscapes, and is made up of Wells Fargo Center, Bunker Hill Steps, Maguire Gardens, and Grand Hope Park.

Halprin created each landscape to be unique and each one of them impacts how Angelenos live and move about the city. The tour will follow along the network, visiting each landscape and discussing how the sites connect to the larger picture of open spaces in Los Angles.

This special tour is presented in partnership with the Architecture and Design (A+D) Museum. The tour coincides with The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin, a traveling photographic exhibit that visits A+D Museum from September 29 to December 31. The exhibit
was designed by The Cultural Landscape Foundation and features fifty-six newly commissioned photographs of Halprin’s work.
