Pacific Rim Park Project
The Pacific Rim has as one of its names “the ring of fire.” The park hopes to change that myth of a ring of fire to “a string of pearls.” The Pacific Rim Park extends the connections created by our shared ocean by bridging cultures, celebrating the beauty of shared public spaces, and promoting respect for the environment.
The Pacific promises a new culture for the 21st century, characterized by tremendous diversity. We believe it is valuable to bring people from these diverse national backgrounds together in a cooperative way, working towards a shared goal of celebrating the shared future of the Pacific Rim. We have learned that this process inspires local citizens, while teaching architecture students how to use their talents to build cooperation and understanding between cultures. We believe this project can play an important role in leading the region toward a new and more connected future.
