Project: Imagine Your Los Angeles Street Beyond Cars

For our next project, we're partnering with Rethink/LA to envision a Los Angeles which is no longer designed for the automobile.

With the joy of Carmageddon behind us (tell us how you celebrated!), it's time to start thinking about the future. A future which, in Los Angeles, will hopefully include some better transit options. But L.A., as we all know, was built for cars, from the country's first freeway to the extra-wide side streets. To move this city forward, we first have to consider what Los Angeles would be like with fewer cars. We're partnering with Rethink LA: Perspectives on a Future City, an exhibition which opens at the A+D Museum in August, to imagine the city when it has moved beyond cars.

If your street wasn't filled with cars—either driving or parking—what would be able to exist there? How would it look? How would it be used? Without cars, which transportation options would need to be put in place there to help people get where they need to go? What decisions would you make to transform the street into a new, vibrant place for L.A.'s residents?
