The project was to design the look of a three square mile Pavarotti concert venue in a remote dry lakebed. The intent was to create a sense of place in a borderless flat desert; create a festive, artful, and consistent look for unimpressive structures in a monotonic setting; complement the desert and highlight the concert without attempting to overshadow them; and provide the 50,000 visitors with a sense of arrival – day or night – while facilitating their orientation.
The rehabilitation of Chapultepec Park in Mexico City included a new signage system to guide and inform the 15 million annual visitors to the park, one of the oldest and largest in Latin America. Design proposals were subject to the approval of forest management, private investors, project managers, users, and the government.
