The design of this park will be split in two phases. Phase One plans include a signature gateway entrance on the north side of the park. This monumental passage is designed to suggest a moment of transition, where visitors can experience that something is changing around them. It emphasize the passage from the built environment and vice versa, suggesting that you just entered a new world.
The Gate at Westside Park is more than just an access point. The gate is a moment of transition, an opportunity to think about what you leave behind and prepare for what you are about to experience. The space created within the gate materializes the precious moments of anticipation. As you walk or drive through the gate, the path elevates and descends as if you are crossing a bridge. The structure’s “ribs” – evocative of the skeletal remains of a mythical creature – filter the light and the landscape dissecting it in glimpses of different worlds. This passageway is an opportunity to pause and enjoy the moment before it quickly vanishes.
