Makeover Plans For Each of the 51 Miles of the LA River

New, 17 comments

Students in a Landscape Architecture class at Cal Poly Pomona have produced tailored (but only theoretical) designs to restore and improve the LA River, with a custom plan for each of the river's 51 miles, reports KCET's River Notes. According to the website that catalogs the final designs, every plan considered, among other things, how to transform each mile in a way that would make any surrounding residents feel good about the river and integrate what's already there into their vision. Their plans include hanging gardens, elevated walkways, mosaics, and boardwalks through wetlands.
