Los Angeles Cleantech Corridor

3rd Place Winner with Jesse Keenan for SciArc and Archpaper’s Cleantech Corridor Competition

The speed of a curve dictates a new gestation and generation in the production and delivery of fresh food and minute by minute decentralized public space.

Beyond Fordism, Flexible Accumulation, and Conceptions of linear and horizontal space, The Locavore’s Agritech is a proposition for a new agribusiness campus located in the post industrialized Alameda Corridor in East Downtown Los Angeles.

Combined with an innovative new growing system, a new utilization and formalization of an in place food truck network would be employed to redefine the role of public space in a city without any, suggesting new more flexible models of land use, real estate valuation, and retrofitting Cities for a post-automobile culture.
