The firm’s innovative research analysis, “MORE LA: Transforming Parking to Places in Southern California,” which was presented at mobility conference LA CoMotion, continues to resonate with audiences concerned about the use of space designated for cars in Los Angeles. Recent press exploring the possibilities explained in this work—lead by CEO Nik Karalis, Design Council Chair James Sanders, SUPERSAPCE Director Christian Derix, and Senior Associate Lucille Ynosencio—has been recently published in major media outlets such as Monocle’s radio program Monocle 24, Fast Company, and Curbed LA.
While it primarily focuses on Los Angeles—America’s second-largest metropolis—the same concepts could also be implemented in other cities dealing with the growing pains of urban densification and land being dedicated to cars. As noted in Fast Company’s recent article, written by Eillie Anzilotti, Jackson, Wyoming, for instance, allows for 27.1 parking spaces per household.
However, the concept of converting car spaces is most profound in Los Angeles. MORE LA proves that the city could potentially create space for 750,000 to 1.5 million new inhabitants.
