Lunch Time Talk on the Downtown Model

James Rojas will be leading a discussion of his Downtown Model (written about in Streetsblog a couple of weeks ago).

In Rojas's words:

The model is interactive and encourages people to participate in a visioning process for downtown LA through building interventions. The plot is 8' by 4' and the buildings are made from recycled objects. I created a car free city and turned parking lots into pocket parks. Pedestrian ways have been cut through the long blocks of Downtown LA. Street car lines have been placed on may streets, along side with green medians and bike paths. Bunker Hill as has been turned into open space.
