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

LA has a sprawling network of roads already, but in the future the city must rely more heavily on other modes of transportation like rail and possibly even the expansive river network. Also, new designs must have multiple functions -- Maltzan envisions bridges and transportation hubs that provide for all forms of transportation through railways, roads, pedestrian paths, and even river routes.

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?
