Project 1: Each of us received a section of Downtown Los Angeles and began to map in both 2D and 3D formats. A completed drawing that encompasses the city as is, as it lives and how it is used was drawn and represented. We mapped Los Angeles in the attempt to understand and represent beyond the buildings.

Project 2: A three-dimensional model was made that represented a translation from project 1. Each aspect of project 1 was made to exist within the physical artifact. Buildings, imagination, dreams, life, trash, people and all aspects of the city were constructed.

Project 3: The final delivery was redrawing through multiple mediums of the city and all of its manifestations. The final model was a consolidation and architectural representation through landscape, object and image of the city.
