A Windshield Perspective
The Framing of LA Architecture and Urbanism
Looking at the way the experience of driving has shaped the architecture and physical geography of Los Angeles, the show examines the notion that buildings are billboards for drivers, and it delves deeply into how seeing and absorbing the city through the windscreen shapes the frontiers of design and city planning. The streets are engaged in a continuous dialogue with drivers, for good and for bad. A Windshield Perspective dissects the language that emerges from a city whose fabric is a daily digest of images gathered through a moving vehicle. The romance and terror of the streets can only be fully understood at 35 miles per hour.
