Gallery: Architects Unveil Incredible Plans for the Future of Los Angel...

 
LA has a large network of roads as well as a large network of water distribution pipes and channels. cityLAB proposes to connect the two to create dynamic water-based landscapes like mist platforms, solar-encased water tanks, aquatic parking lots, and urban beaches. Ideally this would make commuters more aware of the fluctuations in the seasons.

Overall, the three firms believe in a much more sustainable, interconnected, and denser city where buildings serve multiple purposes and public transportation is the norm. Density, common spaces, more green space, and multi-purpose office facilities are expected to be the norm. New developments will expand vertically rather than horizontally, and open public spaces will become a top priority. While all three visions have similar elements in common, there are differences, especially in cityLAB-UCLA’s proposal, which features ideas that are a bit more elaborate. Whose vision do you like best?
