ArtsPark at Young Circle

Images / Description


This significant urban design and cultural project is located in South Florida, in downtown Hollywood, Florida, known as the ArtsPark at Young Circle.  It is a 10-acre innovative Cultural Arts destination and passive landscaped environment. The park immerses its visitors in a sensory environment through Architecture, Landscape, with Visual and Performing Arts and Community engaging activities. The ArtsPark Buildings include two Pavilions, the Visual Arts Pavilion, providing the public options for community classes, a glass blowing studio, metal studio, painting studio, exhibit and classroom and support facilities, outdoor covered classroom spaces and the Performing Arts Pavilion with lawn seating, state of the Art stage, equipment and support spaces.  

The Park concept embraces the vision to link the natural environment of the existing trees and the creative spirit of art in an articulated landscape, through the integration of unique and interactive elements, for everyone in the community to connect to.  It is also important to celebrate the distinctive aspects of this environment, especially the unique Baobab trees, while exploring the layering of senses and creating many opportunities for users to spend time in the park to connect to each other and the architecture of the history of Hollywood’s Lakes District.
