The Bollard Project was a series of suggestions for beautifying the bollards in front of USBT in downtown Los Angeles.  The building is next to a beautiful flight of stairs with a fountain by Lawrence Halprin.  The recommendations I made referenced the water feature of Halprin’s stairway, signaling its arrival as you walk down the street.  This staircase was one of several moves Halprin made to tie together the fabric of downtown Los Angeles.  The client chose not to do any of the  suggestions at that time, but for me, discovering the amazing subtleties of Halprin’s visions for the city were enough to make this exercise worth every moment I spent on it.
