City Heights transformed a dilapidated and dangerous city lot into a beautiful, artistic gathering space. The Pomegranate process uses a collaborative effort between community organizers, government, artists and community members to make neighborhoods more livable, safe and socially engaged.

 

What's so amazing about the Pomagranate Process is how it brings community together, from government bodies, to artists, to kids in the neighborhood, to make something real and physical happen in such a short period of time. The physical space is transformed and so is our thinking about how things get done. 

 

2015: this project received a Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects.
