A Monorail on the Sunset Strip and Other Visions of LA's Future

New, 17 comments

Last night, Curbed attended the opening party for the Rethink/LA: Perspectives on a Future City exhibit at the A+D Museum. The exhibit most prominently features 20 photographs of present day Los Angeles, juxtaposed with 20 collages of a future LA. Collages showcased the icons, infrastructure, boulevards, freeways, urban environments, and suburban environments of Southern California, ranging from fanciful images of surfers in a wave pool at the Hyperion Treatment Plant to complete streets propaganda pieces. The LA River and 405 through the Sepulveda Pass collages drew some of the most vocal raves among party-goers. Here are some of those collages (and the "before" photos), as well as photos of the variety of pieces comprising the exhibit--including a writable wall highlighting lifestyle and commute questions inspired by City Council President Eric Garcetti and "Wilshire on Wilshire," an interactive, found-object model by James Rojas.
