We are well into Day 3 of the American Planning Association conference in downtown Los Angeles. If you aren’t here, I will write up a few posts to point out some highlights. And if you are here but missed the Saturday presentation on my master’s project, I’ve published the slides here:

We found this installation on the way to lunch. If you ever watched The Price Is Right, remember the Pathfinder game? It required the contestant to start on a numbered square with the first digit in the price of a car, then move to an adjacent square with the next digit, and so on. This was a mix between that and the light-up sidewalk in Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean video.

Tomorrow I’ll be attending a mobile workshop in West Hollywood. Their planning division will show us how they’ve achieved an extraordinarily high residential density while maintaining a livable city. Expect posts on that and on closing thoughts on the conference in future entries.
