In June, a team of interns from EDAW presented their plans for Park 101, a freeway cap park that would span the 101 freeway as it passes through Downtown.

Those who missed that presentation get two chances to get up to speed on Thursday, as Habeas Index presents both a lunchtime chat and an evening presentation on the subject. Both are to be held at the Art Space, on the 2nd level of the 7+Fig shopping center.

The lunchtime chat starts at 12:30pm, and guests are invited to bring food to eat. Those who attend will get to check out the project's impressive model and hear from Project Managers Gaurav Srivastava and Mike Williams, along two students who participated in the Intern program.

The evening's event, from 5 - 7:30pm, will bring a longer presentation and more time for Q&A.

Habeas Index is "a forum of events, presentations and discussions about Los Angeles and Los Angeles issues." The Thursday lunchtime chat series has been going on for several weeks, and previously featured James Rojas' playful Downtown model.
