WASHINGTON PARK, PASADENA
Inspired by historic photographs of the park, Onyx proposed a series of dressed-log shade ramadas for the picnic area and information displays. The native plant information display area replaced a dark and unsafe former bathroom facility with an open and airy wood, stone and steel ramada. The displays were turned inside-out, so that visitors could face both the park and the displays at the same time, while enjoying the shaded comfort of the log ramada.
The ramadas were carefully positioned to function singly or as part of a large group setting. Careful grading preserved the historic river rock walls, while providing alternate paths for accessibility.
