City Plate - Los Angeles

$50.00
Part of our first series of City Plates.  The theme of the first collection is "City as Gateway," and the cities chosen are Los Angeles, Shanghai, Cairo and Berlin.  With this theme we ask: how is each city dealing with the effects of agglomeration as its population begins to reach critical mass?

The Los Angeles plate design shows what used to be labeled "sprawl"—and is now being looked at as a model for modern development.  The city, thanks to its youth and love of the automobile, has developed in a singular way that runs counter to the traditional condensed urban cores of East Coast cities.  As cities’ populations grow and cities themselves drift towards each other, the multiple-city-center approach of Los Angeles is becoming more and more familiar.
