ARCH 502A: Adaptive M isuse

Neglected –> Connected

This project reinvigorates the underappreciated and omnipresent essence of Los
Angeles’ strip malls. By redefining strip malls as a connected network of public spaces, the
proposal shows the possibility for street vibrancy in the future while preserving the allure and life
of LA’s strip malls through the construction of a new third space and architectural interventions.
