The Studio study of the relationship of architecture to urbanism and, more specifically, of the architectural artifact as urbanism. The studio project is for a very large mixed use complex in the Lincoln Heights area of Los Angeles, adjacent to the Los Angeles River, and is to be conceived in relation to the current plans for the river’s transformation.
