The Urban Design Committee is looking forward to a year of supporting legislative initiatives and public and private investments that improve urban design in Los Angeles.

At our January 2014 meeting Valerie Watson, the project manager for People St, presented the City of LA’s new program for temporary parks, People St. A palette of three prototypical parks can be implemented throughout the city. Given the resounding interest in the program the Urban Design Committee will host a People St. workshop.

This is an opportunity for you to learn more about the project, to find collaborators, and to show your idea to the design community.

We will present the details of the People St design palette
  • Anne Zimmerman (AZ Architects) will tell us about her conversations with the Venice neighborhood council and present her strategic approach.
    Nick Antonio will present an overview of Mass Motion – A highly advanced pedestrian simulation and crowd analysis tool developed by Arup.
  • Ashle Fauvre will provide a presentation on Gehl Architect’s tools for evaluating pedestrian activity.
  • We will see several short presentations on specific People St open space proposals

If you are pursuing a People St project or considering to do so this meeting is for you. Feel free to invite community partners or neighborhood council members.

Project information in preparation for the meeting:

At this meeting we will also continue building our 2014 agenda by identifying further urban design opportunities, initiatives, and projects, which contribute to a more livable, people-friendly city.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 19th at 7pm at the offices of Torti Gallas and Partners in Downtown LA.
