LOST + FOUND OPPORTUNITIES: Based on the aspects of separate but intertwined values, hopes and dreams are influenced by the opprotunity of life and lifestyle that the Los Angeles area provides. Aspects of the dream are primarily about the journey, transitional spaces, and sublime experiences. Dreams are motions within the mind that can be translated into aspirational movements translated into the site. Hope is the feeling of what is wanted, can be had. This feeling heavily influenced the establishment of the west coast and the city of Los Angeles. Hope serves as the destination of residency and opportunity.


RESIDENTIAL COMMERCIAL MIXED USE INSTITUTIONAL


PROGRAMMATIC ZONING BY SUBLIME Similarily to how settlement occuring in the Los Angeles Basin, the geomorphology and geo-urbanism heavily influenced the city grid. Areas of development include views sublime LA as the public space, leaving the elevated and overlooking areas for the public.

The ideas of hopes and dreams can be translated into programmatic use with the aspirational qualities can come with the creative field. Performing arts such as music and theater, primarily what Los Angeles is known for, will be implemented with the idea that opportunity and residency is within context.
