HYPHAE allows for resource reclamation on a brownfield site alongside the 101 freeway in downtown Los Angeles. Taking dry water runoff from the main storm drain arteries and purifying it, HYPHAE is able to use the water in its cooling system and store water for use on site. The site will become a new gathering place at the intersection of multiple modes of transport creating a cool oasis in the concrete desert of DTLA. The reintroduction of a street car station and the addition of a gondola stop increases lightweight transportation options for the neighborhood. Additionally, the steel frame structure allows for additional mixed use spaces to be inserted into its system to meet users needs as the site is reactivated into the surrounding area.
