Pocket Park Design: Wilted Lettuce Park | 2015 National High School Architecture Competition

Pictured is a rendering of the stage area towards the end of the parks walkways. Surrounding the stage the clustered and crowded flora atmosphere of the park is replaced with a simple grass field. The openness around the stage will allow passerby and park-goers to utilize the large grass field for a place to rest with blankets and have picnics as they watch performances.


I like how you included a stage, as it really suits the idea of the Arts District in the downtown area of Las Vegas. The amount of foliage and shade structures was also well thought out.

What a swagalicious idea. I think a pavilion overhead of the stage would've aided the performers a great deal, but still...pretty RAD.

I love the idea of having a small stage in the park, it will give people the opportunity to show off their talents if they wanted to. I also agree with GmoneyMcSwagger above about the idea of a pavilion. With how high the temperature can reach here in Las Vegas, it will provide the performers with good protection from the sunlight.

I really like the stage you included in your park. It really gives off a sense of community and unity. People can freely perform on the stage for other people to enjoy, everyone can share their own talents. This idea also reminds me of the Container Park in Downtown Las Vegas. Great concept!
