Immense, diverse and surprisingly dense, Los Angeles is a living laboratory of art and architecture, pop culture and immigrant enclaves. In decades past it became a symbol of auto-centric urbanism — but the city has recently pioneered efforts at urban retrofit, infill development and environmental restoration. Los Angeles has a lot in common with San Jose — and there is a lot to learn from its recent resurgence. Come join David Baker of David Baker and Partners, SPUR Urban Design and Public Realm Manager Ben Grant and SPUR Deputy Director Sarah Karlinsky as they share the latest in urban planning and design from the City of Angels.
