BALDWIN HILLS: The Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area gets a fancy new bridge next week--the Baldwin Hills Gateway has rails designed by local sculptor Cliff Garten and marks "the entry into the Baldwin Hills Parklands, the last two-square miles of open spaces in the Los Angeles basin."The eight foot high screens on each side of the bridge are "perforated with a pattern inspired by Garten's idea of surveying the 1,200 acres of open space at its smallest and largest scales" and will throw some "unique shadows" onto the bridge. The whole area will be getting a huge Mia Lehrer + Associates-designed makeover over the next three decades.
