Crenshaw / LAX Transit Corridor
The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor aims to link LAX and the Exposition Metro lines via Inglewood, CA. The site and canopy designs for the seven stations on this new metro line call upon the history and neighborhood ecologies of the iconic Crenshaw district, known nationally as the locale of the Los Angeles riots spawning from the Rodney King Trial in 1992. Throughout the first phase of the project, Hood Design completed studies mapping the social and ecological tendencies of the neighborhood. These studies led the team to identifying each station with an individual mantra, a driving force behind the station’s canopy and site design. The seven station sites vary in topography, site elements, station location, and canopy type, but together establish new links among the fractured communities.
