SCI-Arc Book Launch: A New Infrastructure, Innovative Transit Solutions for Los Angeles

What: Please join SCI-Arc's Future Initiatives Program in celebrating the publication of A New Infrastructure, New Transit Solutions for Los Angeles.

When: Saturday, November 14, 4 p.m.

Where: W. M. Keck Lecture Hall at SCI-Arc

Published in part with the generous support of the City of Los Angeles' Department of Cultural Affairs, the 156-page book documents the results of the SCI-Arc's inaugural Future Initiatives competition. The competition was inspired by LA County Measure R—a half cent sales tax that promises up to $40 billion in transit funding in coming decades. It drew 75 proposals from architecture firms and students throughout the U.S. and from four other countries.

The publication party will follow the SCIFI Fall 2009 Symposium: Other New Urbanisms, 2 p.m.-4 p.m. in the W. M. Keck Hall. Light refreshments will be served.

Parking lot entrance: 350 Merrick Street, between 4th Street and Traction Avenue.
