2003 Hines Competition Finalist – University of Southern California


“Twenty-first Century Urban Promenade”

Team 1001
University of Southern California (USC)

Team 1001 reinterpreted the grandeur of L’Enfant’s Baroque boulevard as a twenty-first century urban promenade that retains its formality and intersperses it with enlivened streets full of “hidden courtyards and surprises.” As South Capitol Street extends towards the river, its character transitions from civic to live-work to natural.
