Hacienda Heights

This concept for the Hacienda Heights community center was based on Oliver being struck upon exploring the site and seeing nearly a dozen plastic playground sets which were all apparently slated to be destroyed when the site was upgraded.  He measured all the parts of all the playground sets, designed a system to helically cut all the hollow molded plastic components separately and make a sort of explosion of plastic ribbons from the tympanum of the soon to be constructed outdoor theater.  It was applauded for its use of color by the country arts commission but ultimately not selected.
