Robert F. Kennedy Inspiration Park

Los Angeles, California
United States

Representing sparkling constellations from the night of Robert F. Kennedy’s birth, tiny fiber optic luminaries embedded in blue pavement highlight a vibrant nighttime presence for the Robert F. Kennedy Inspiration Park, located at the base of a 24 acre campus for the RFK Community Schools.

HLB’s design goal was to emphasize two parallel walls that serve as artwork for the park. Safety, vandalism, and maintenance for the park were also a concern due to the dense urban setting. Throughout the park, fluorescent step lights and bollards are integrated into steps and walls to provide a sense of security and comfort without obstructing views.
