99% Preservation and 1% Densification: A Case for Urban Density along the Wilshire Corridor

Yitao Chen and Rizzie Walker

99% Preservation and 1% Densification: A Case for Urban Density along the Wilshire Corridor is the answer of architects Thom Mayne and Eui-Sung Yi of the Now Institute and Morphosis Architecture to the increasingly pressing dilemma of how to fit a projected 1.5 million people there by 2050.

Mark Gold, UCLA's associate vice chancellor of environment and sustainability, will be present to moderate the conversation and any subsequent questions.
