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

As it stands now, recreation spaces in LA are primarily located near the beach on the Western edge of the city, and in the mountains to the North and the East -- all far away from where most people live. Maltzan proposes increasing urban park space and making it multi-purpose. Hybridized landscapes would include fields and sport courts, gardening, work zones, children's playgrounds and more.

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?
