"A STREET / A RIVER" IN SHELTER LA EXHIBITION AT A+D MUSEUM

Shelter LA: Rethinking How We Live in Los Angeles features single and multi-family housing proposals in two of the city’s most fertile new development zones: the Wilshire Corridor, where a new subway extension will reach miles to the west; and the Los Angeles River, where a more than billion-dollar restoration is catalyzing a surge of new buildings.

FfF was invited to help contextualize these sites and pose our own question:
"How do people relate / adjust / adapt / coexist with a street and a river in flux? "

Shelter LA is on view now until November 6. Watch the full video HERE.
