The recently completed Plaza Morazan in the Central American concentrated neighborhood of Westlake is the newest sustainable addition to public space commemorating cultural heritage in Los Angeles and the first ever public space dedicated to Central Americans in the U.S. La Loma led the design, inspired by former LA Creek Freak Joe Linton, which included converting a desolate triangle median, into a pocket park with authentic reclaimed cobble stone, stained poured concrete in the shape of Central American countries, urbanite walls, and drought tolerant plants. In addition to planting basins and overall site grading designed to harvest rainwater, the centerpiece of the plaza is a bronze bust of Francisco Morazan
