On the summer of 2003,
LA H*UB, a Los Angeles-based collaborative of artists and architects, organized
an exhibition based on a competition they sponsered. The competition generated
ideas for the proposed Civic Park in downtown Los Angeles.
Fifty international artists and architects proposals were presented in the form of 2 minutes videos and small booklets (links to proposals).
The exhibition was running for 6 weeks at Gallery 727 in Downtown Los Angeles. LA H*UB designed and fabricated the exhibition installation, which included a 150 feet long miandering troughd, 6 bent plywood benches, a backdrop wall installation and four wall mounted monitors (exhibition photos).
