A proposal for the Pleasanton Central Park Design Competition in Pleasanton, CA. The site is located between the downtown and the neighboring foothills, with an 8-lane highway reinforcing the separation. The proposal envisaged a continuous green surface connecting the downtown to the foothills and Pleasanton ridge, created by a translucent grass system that crossed the highway. A system for growing and maintaining grass in a bed of transparent polycarbonate honeycomb with translucent fiber fill was developed and tested. The translucent grass panels were designed to provide a walking surface over the highway and filter daylight and light from cars on the highway during the night.
Scope: Competition entry
Site: A 400 acre land neighboring downtown Pleasanton
