South Los Angeles Wetland Park Facility
Julius Shulman Emerging Talent Award Competition
Project team: Nicole Doan, Kate Bilyk, Jeffrey Stevens
This adaptive reuse project re-purposes the Red Car building near South LA’s Wetland Park in order to introduce a community-oriented facility. While keeping the existing primary structure, 10 volumes were placed into the original building to house various programs such as a study center, multipurpose rooms, and a cafe.
Los Angeles' South Park houses the project site that neighbors the South LA Wetland Park and Maya Angelou Community High School. The project targets South Park's underprivileged residents, particularly children who would use the proposed community center.
