Las Vegas People Mover:  Las Vegas, NV

The Las Vegas People Mover is a 1.3 mile system that utilizes the M-Bahn magnetic levitation technology.  The capacity initially required by the city was 4,000 pphpd.  This was achieved by utilizing three trains of two vehicles each, operating in a pinched loop with approximately three-minute headways.  In off-peak hours, fewer trains and possibly single vehicles are put into operation.  The ultimate capacity requirement is 8,000 pphpd, which can be reached by putting three additional trains into service and reducing the headway to approximately 1-1/2 minutes.  The system operates automatically from the control center, with the operators managing the system operations and supervising the stations.  The overall alignment for the system starts at a new station adjacent to the Cashman Field complex and runs westerly over Las Vegas Boulevard to the new Central Library and Discovery Museum.  The alignment continues south, passing over Interstate I-90, then turns east into the station at the new Downtown transportation center.
Responsibilities included:  programming, architectural design.

Sepulveda Bridge:  Los Angeles, CA

Spanning the Los Angeles River in the recreation area of the Sepulveda Flood Control Basin, this bridge had to be designed to complement the planned parklike surroundings.  The design solution was a graceful, tapered reinforced concrete span with aluminum pedestrian railings. Although stretching 300 feet abutment to abutment and designed to carry six lanes total, the bridge appears lighter than a conventionally designed six-lane bridge because the structure is actually twin bridges, two parallel structures with a 24-foot separation between them.

University Transit Station - California State University Los Angeles:  Los Angeles, CA

Honor Award
American Institute of Architects

This bus station is a component of the nation?s first designated bus rapid transit system and is an intermediate station on the exclusive right of way route between Los Angeles and El Monte. The station had to provide three separate loading platforms at three different vertical elevations. The design had to facilitate pedestrian circulation between the three loading platforms, free of the two bus rights-of-way and an existing railroad right-of-way. Pedestrian circulation to the busses is via an elevated bridge spanning 130 feet between two vertical circulation towers that house elevators and  stairwells.  The structure of exposed steel and concrete is minimal; the elevated passenger spaces enclosed with wire mesh for enhanced user  visibility ,security, and for the panoramic views to the neighboring hills. A vierendeel steel truss system was selected for the bridge design.
Responsibilities included:  programming, architectural design and engineering, construction documentation.
