Metro Center Project

The Metro Center Project is a new transportation facility close to the Arts District that will provide a central location for Metro security operations, dispatch, and emergency coordination. 

Project Artist

>> Jacob Hashimoto, The Ancient Forest

The artwork for Metro’s Center Project facility will be an architecturally integrated piece by Jacob Hashimoto. This site-specific installation is silkscreened onto the exterior metal panels. The artwork patterns are inspired by the cellular structure of the bristlecone pine, one of the oldest known living organisms and native to California. Also woven into the design are references to Metro’s transit network. Gradations in the panel colors and patterning mimic the movement of the sun, as it crosses the region from East to West.
