Oceans of Asphalt No More! LA's Streets Shrink

Via Narrow Street LA
Via Eastsider LA, a post by Narrow Streets LA, which has done a Photoshop job on Sunset Boulevard. Via Narrow Streets LA: "Los Angeles has its landmarks to be sure, but they can sometimes feel few, far between, and robbed of thunder + context by the oceans of asphalt separating them...But when narrowed, the two buildings become related--a phenomenon called proximity in design parlance, where the viewer assigns more meaning as two objects move nearer to one another." The Wilshire Boulevard transformation is pretty fabulous, too.
