Never Before Seen: An Exercise in Imaginary Transportation S

In collaboration with Toyota, SiteLA Cothing, and local artists, I facilitated a workshop where forty participants were asked to re imagine transportation in Los Angeles. The only guideline was that it had to be public, sustainable and be render in a 3-d model.  The participants imagined a future with an  transit system, walkable and bikeable streets, dense development and lots of public space.  Some of the ideas should be studied today, such as a ferry system connecting beach areas and ocean adjacent cities.  Others, such as a kite system to fly people from building to building, probably need more work before they can be applied. After presenting their views they tried to unify their vision with those sitting nearest them.  Participants discovered that their visions fit together in creating a cohesive plan that was quite different than the region’s current transportation system.

Re-Imagining Chinatown: An Interactive Planning Process

In collaboration with Fifth Floor Store and Art Gallery I created a hands-on interactive model of Chinatown enabling participants dream about its future. The economic, social, and built environment of Chinatown is rapidly changing and the model captured that energy through an interactive public participation process.   The model included the Cornfields and portions of the LA River and highlighted the area’s topography, streets, and historic blocks.  The model was designed to inspire the participants through its grand interventions, vivid use of materials, colors, textures and by allowing the public to touch and imprint their vision on it. The Art Gallery became an impromptu urban planner’s “store” with shelves lining the wall that hosted an array of small, colorful buildings. Visitors took these buildings off the shelves and place them on the model located in the middle of the gallery to create their ideal urban form. The model constantly changed as the work built upon the contributions of others. This technique facilitated public participation in the urban planning process by using art as an interactive, creative medium to help people think about their community. The evolving exhibition mimicked the dynamic and collective nature of life in Chinatown. These activities reflect how varied groups of players—strangers, neighbors, friends—interact to create a sense of place in Chinatown.
