99% Preservation and 1% Densification: A Case for Urban Density along the Wilshire Corridor

Read More:

Architects and professors Thom Mayne and Eui-Sung Yi of the Now Institute, an urban research center at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design, and Morphosis Architects, present a proposal for a high-density, interconnected urban community along L.A.’s iconic Wilshire Corridor.

The plan accommodates the city’s anticipated population increase—1.5 million people by 2050—by densifying less than one percent of its land. Comparing Wilshire Boulevard to major streets in other global metropolises, including Barcelona’s Avenida Diagonal and New York’s Broadway and Hong Kong’s Island Line, they model real-world responses to growth and transformation that offer more sustainable strategies for Los Angeles. Moderated by Mark Gold, UCLA associate vice chancellor of environment and sustainability.
