Destination Crenshaw

Destination Crenshaw is an outdoor art and cultural experience that was built in response to the extension of the light rail here at-grade. To compensate for a train that runs above ground, which is likely to make the boulevard less pedestrian-friendly, architect Gabrielle Bullock and her team designed a series of outdoor parks and art installations featuring work by Black artists, creating a green and inspiring refuge amid the concrete. In addition, the project was designed to bolster the community living there, with spaces for local businesses.
