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

 
A traditional transportation system is not appropriate for LA, which has many different centers. Gensler proposes a GPS-enhanced mobility center that incorporates all modes of transportation (bus, rail, shared cars, bikes, etc) and is accessible via your smart phone. In this system user demand directs the transportation modes, rather than the transportation routes dictating where people can travel.

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?
