The Earth Institute (LA)

The new Earth Institute building on the hills of Los Angeles is an active campus that brings together multiple disciplines in one place. Taking advantage of the local environment and its proximity to downtown Los Angeles, this think tank is also a place of experimentation for scientists to research issues of air quality, wildfires, and drought in California. This institution is a place for scientists and students to develop new technologies to capture CO2 emissions and reduce the use of fossil fuels in power generation, transportation, and industrial processes. This is a place to develop change in every aspect of modern life from manufacturing, agriculture, and transportation. Discussions about change in every aspect of the economy would require multiple users from scientists, students, economists, and policymakers. Our proposal introduces multiple circulation routes for these multiple users. As a place of experimentation spaces are flexible and programs overlap both visually and spatially.
