Today, Places posts an excerpt from architect Michael Maltzan's book No More Play: Conversations on Urban Speculation in Los Angeles and Beyond, in which he writes about his impressions of Los Angeles in the early nineties and about the radical changes the city is undergoing now: "the sprawl of yesterday is being built upon in novel ways, causing density's newest iteration to be greater in scale and mass than ever before. And the new density has imposed psychological effects on the city's collective identity, suggesting that a boundary or limit of the city-region of Los Angeles has finally been reached." [Places]
