Ying-Yu Hung FASLA

Managing Principal, SWA Group

Public parks are of particular interest to Ying-yu, as they have a direct impact in improving quality of life. Through her 25 years of practice, Ms. Hung investigates the desires and needs of the project’s ultimate stakeholders in order to ensure a final outcome that encourages the community to be both users and stewards of the park. Recent projects include the Milton Street Park on the Ballona Creek, Reseda Park on the Los Angeles River, and Ricardo Lara Linear Park in Lynwood, California; all three projects exemplify the unique conditions of where urban ecology and infrastructure issues intersect
