a bridge designed for the new transportaion in LA
los angeles county, will provide as much as 40 billion USD for local transit
related projects over the next 30 years.
paris based firm odile decq and benoit cornette architects received a special
jury prize for their proposal for the competition to design new transport solutions
in LA county. the concept consists of specially designed vehicles which can be
driven on freeways and bridges (each having a designated lane). the small vehicles,
also have various parking stations around the city.
LA county’s transit infrastructure also known as the ‘freeway city,’ provides
an ideal context for an examination of the relationship between existing
infrastructures (streets, overpasses, culverts, right of ways,
power lines, and disused rail lines) and new urban systems.
