Jack London Square Performance Green
Completed in 2012 by TS Studio, Jack London Square Performance Green transforms an on-structure underutilized hardscape plaza into a soft amphitheater around an existing public art sculpture and fountain. The folded lawn forms a comfortable seating terrace, varying in height for different ages and postures, the integrated bench provides views to existing stage and performance area. The sculpted lawn with corten steel edge integrates seamlessly with the existing context - the amphitheater stairs and renovated fountain. The intervention transforms this area into a modern terrace that looks out towards the Foot of Broadway plaza- the waterfront site for Oakland’s Christmas tree, weekly farmer’s market, and year around events.
