Taylor Yard Bridge over Los Angeles River
Zoltan E. Pali, FAIA and his architectural firm SPF:architects (SPF:a) announce the completion of the Taylor Yard Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge, or “Taylor Yard Bridge”, a 400-foot bikeway and pedestrian bridge that spans across the Los Angeles River and connects Elysian Valley to Cypress Park via the Taylor Yard G-2 site, a 42-acre industrial parcel and former railyard at the center of the city’s river revitalization plans.

City of LA Officially Breaks Ground on Taylor Yard Bridge
June 2019 marked the official groundbreaking of Taylor Yard Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge (a.k.a. Rumblefish), SPF:a’s bright orange span connecting the Elysian Valley on the river’s eastern bank to Cypress Park on the western bank, and the L.A. River Bike Path to the future 42-acre Taylor Yard G2 River Park.
The day’s ceremony was led by Los Angeles City Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Gil Cedillo and Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell, with community constituents, representatives from the Bureau of Engineering, and team members from SPF:architects and ARUP in attendance.
The bridge will advance the City of LA’s goal of assuring that 56 percent of Angelenos live within one-half mile of a park or open space (Sustainable City Plan). Together, the Taylor Yard G2, and G1 parcels will provide Elysian Valley and Cypress Park residents to approximately 100 acres of open space.
The $20.6 million project—funded through an agreement with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro)—is expected to wrap early 2021.
Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences, Santa Monica
We announce that SPF:a has been chosen as one of two architectural teams selected to lead the expansion and enhancement of the performing arts facilities at the Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences in Santa Monica, California.
SPF:a has been charged with the design of 45,000-square-foot state-of-the-art theater complex that will house 650-seats, a recital hall, recording studio, choral rehearsal space, and an electronic music classroom, among other facilities. In addition, the building will incorporate outdoor green space, including an open-air theater, courtyards, and verdant rooftop areas.
Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences is a K-12, coed college preparatory school founded upon five basic commitments: to academic excellence; to the arts; to the greater community; to the development of a student population of social, economic and racial diversity; and to the development of each student’s physical well-being and full human potential. The school is highly acclaimed for its programs and is a leader in public/private educational partnerships. Some notable Crossroads alumni include Jonah Hill, Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Construction is expected to begin the Fall of 2020.
