3hree Ways Across – Urban Design Studio

This spring, I’m part of the Cal Poly Pomona landscape+architecture 4th year urban design studio, looking at downtown Los Angeles around Union Station – an area primed for redevelopment as transit options increasingly serve the area – perhaps making these neighborhoods the best connected part of the city.

Our review schedule (all are 2-6pm at Cal Poly Pomona):

  • Aprill 11th – site analysis of the district around Union Station
  • April 25th – master plan review
  • May 7th – mid-review
  • May 30th – final review

Let me know if you want to participate. More details to follow.

Wind and Water

Hint.FM (Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg) created a seductive visualization of wind flows for the US. Click the image for a real-time animation and links to the past few weeks of weather patterns. (via Lian)

Equally beguiling is David Wicks’ Drawing Water, which documents precipitation with the water transfers to urban users.


These maps remind me of ocean current visualization that I saw few months back created by JPL and MIT.
