American Academy in China asks, "Is Los Angeles Ready for Vertical Urbanism?"

April 28, 2017

May 9, 2017
AAC Forum

 

Asian developers are working on some of the biggest projects in Los Angeles today, bringing different approaches to city growth and urban design. In Asia, where densities are higher than in LA, projects often mix uses more intensely and rely more thoroughly on mass transit. Is LA ready for this kind of vertical urbanism?

 

This forum, to be held on May 9 at 6:30pm, will bring together some of the players shaping downtown LA and their architects. The goal is to generate a dialogue about the future of Los Angeles and place it within the larger context of urbanism around the world.
