City of West Hollywood
28 March 2017
The City of West Hollywood has launched its Micro-Parks Pilot Program with the installation of its first micro-park — the #WeLoveWeHo “selfie wall” at West Hollywood City Hall, located at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard. Designed by Moore+Friesl, architects Terri Moore and Marcus Friesl, the micro-park encourages residents and visitors to interact with the east-facing wall of City Hall on N. Sweetzer Avenue by posing in front of it and using the hashtag #WeLoveWeHo in order to create digital posts to share on social media.
"The wall is a visual representation of what so many people feel: a great deal of love for our community,” said Mayor Pro Tempore John Heilman. “We are really fortunate to have so many residents, business people, and visitors who love West Hollywood.”
#WeLoveWeHo consists of multi-colored hearts shaped in the geography of the City of West Hollywood, a design inspiration that was first popularized by the City’s logo, which also uses the City’s geographic boundaries for its icon. The micro-park provides passers-by with an innovative perspective on the traditional park and its bold colors brim with positive affirmations of love, community, togetherness, and optimism. As a selfie spot, the wall aims to bring people together, whether standing next to it or logging in from across the miles to view posts through social media.
