South LA's New Village

October 04, 2017

One of the largest building projects ever undertaken by USC, the new $700-million Village campus houses eight residential colleges, a conference center, a Trader Joes, a mobility hub, and an array of retail shops.  RELM incorporated USC’s ornate Italian brickwork and paving patterns throughout the hardscape, softening the environment with bosques of camphor of trees, a central water feature, and several verdant gathering nodes.  The Village demonstrates USC’s desire to improve the quality of space and economy in South Los Angeles.
