DMJM's project for Sunset Mountain Park Urban Nucleus Project, Santa Monica, won first prize in an architectural competition staged in 1965-1966 (First Award winner in the 1966 Progressive Architecture Magazine [P/A/] Awards Program). Cesar Pelli and Anthony Lumsden were active in the design process.

Unbuilt. Like some of Le Corbusier's designs of the 1920s and 1930s, this project consisted of a megastructure, concentrated in square footage to preserve as much of its 3,550-acre natural surroundings as possible.
