Metro's Center Street Project is a new Metro facility in the Arts District that will provide a central location for Metro security operations, dispatch, and emergency coordination. Read more about the transit project here.)
The Center Street Project Artwork will be a large-scale sculptural relief on the exterior façade facing North and West. Artist Jacob Hashimoto is working in collaboration with the design team to integrate the artwork into the building’s architectural skin.

The artwork for LA Metro’s Center Street Project will be a multistory, sculptural relief installation by artist Jacob Hashimoto. This site-specific project will consist of hundreds of small, metal, multicolored components that will be woven, cross stitch-like, into the building’s façade, creating a complex, abstracted landscape that will colorfully weave its way around part of the building.
“The artwork will build from the central idea of connectivity and interdependence…reflecting the values, mission and future ambitions of Metro while acknowledging LA’s aspirations, social dynamics and environmental characteristics.” – Jacob Hashimoto
