Public spaces including living streets are central to the winning entries in this design competition that asked entrants to envision forward thinking strategies for the redevelopment of a four mile corridor along the L.A. River. I attended the jury discussion at the opening of the exhibit on Saturday and would urge anybody interested in the future of Los Angeles to head over to SCI-Arc to be inspired by the great ideas on display. The sponsors, SCI-Arc and The Architect’s Newspaper, asked entrants to re-conceptualize LA’s urban fabric, including ideas about circulation and public space, as part of a broader strategy to support the industries of tomorrow.
Exhibit Venue – SCI-Arc, 350 Merrick Street, Los Angeles (Directions)
Hours – Open daily from 10 am to 6 pm through October 27.
