We are thrilled to announce Renewing the Dream: The Mobility Revolution and the Future of Los Angeles, our latest publication in collaboration with Rizzoli.

The book is a wide-ranging dissertation on the continual impact of transport electrification, the re-appropriation and adaptability of previous vacant parking lots, and conventional petrol or gas pumping stations usually located on premium corner sites.

Renewing the Dream is a first-of-its-kind urban planning manifesto from a major architectural practice in many years.

Our global teams, book editor James Sanders, global place consultancy Era-co, and renowned urban landscape contributors, including Frances Anderton, Donald Shoup, and Mark Vallianatos, thoughtfully examine, propose, and investigate alternate urbanization scenarios balanced across new mobility modes.

Since 2015, Woods Bagot has progressively invested in research and technology to understand human experiences better in support of its People Architecture vision. It is a purposeful shift towards an architecture practice that relates more directly to the user experience.

Woods Bagot is invested in understanding the context of its local communities, seeking meaningful insight into critical regional issues, and providing appropriate solutions to housing shortages and relevant urban design challenges.

Los Angeles is a polycentric city that launched suburbia around the emancipation of mobility. It has much to offer global metropolises as it deals with its deep-seated car culture and moves towards electrification. Mobility is still one of the most compelling arguments for sustainable development and imagining how we will all live and travel in the future.

The book is available to purchase here, or see below for a small preview.
