LA's Opens First Pedestrian Plaza

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

It's Friday and the weekend is almost here!

Celebrate by stopping by Los Angeles' first pedestrian plaza in Silver Lake. Yes, this polka-dotted design from Rios Clementi Hale was unveiled in the beginning of March by the Streets for People movement, whose mission is to "inexpensively repurpose underused portions of streets, changing them into vibrant public spaces, and turning streets for cars into streets for people." In a land of constant sunshine, I think it's about time we took advantage of it. 

Have you stopped by? What do you think?

Read more about it on The Architect's Newspaper blog (with two of my previous articles for them hyperlinked too!)
