Low-Rise: Housing Ideas for Los Angeles
Register/Submit Deadline: Friday, Feb 12, 2021
"For much of the 20th century in Los Angeles, and particularly in the decades following World War II, architectural experimentation as well as efforts to boost household wealth and upward mobility focused on the same location: the single-family house. [...] That dream needs an update. With Los Angeles having run out of room to sprawl, and out of new empty parcels of land to conquer with single-family subdivisions, the standalone house has become more a place to protect wealth than to begin building it."
