    Forum 9, April 21st, 2010: Mini-Charrette, Finding Public Open Space in Los Angeles @ Rios Clementi Hale Studios

    Creating open space in an age of austerity

    April’s Forum was a session to brainstorm working methods and tactics for creating open space in the context of vanishing public-sector funding.

    7 pm: Mini- Charette at Rios Clementi Hale Studios

    Michael Sweeney from Rios Clementi Hale introduced the topic through a presentation about finding methods and strategies for open space. Discussion during the mini-charrette were based on questions such as:

    • In a built-out city, where can we find opportunities for public open space?
    • What latent or underutilized open space resources are available?
    • Do we need to make better use of Los Angeles’ limited open space resources or do we need more open space?
    • As a city, where can we find the money, the will, and the land for open space in LA?
    • As professionals, what opportunities do we see?
