Through Acupuncture Urbanism, which uses a precise and focused series of interventions on the site, the New Portal mends the two halves of the park, once divided by the freeway, together and rejuvenates the entire body of the park. By embracing the freeway as an integral part of the composition, the New Portal puts people back above the car and creates a seamless experience both above and below the portal. As a result, the portal is transformed from a tunnel, a non-descript means of circulation between two disparate halves, to an intersection, a celebratory crossroads at the convergence of culture and history.
