A Call for Ideas by Rail L.A.


When we were in L.A. last week at the U.S. High Speed Rail Association Conference, we met Ashley and Gunnar Hand and Gerhard Mayer of Rail L.A. Rail L.A. was recently founded by members of the L.A. chapters of the American Institute of Architects and the American Planning Association. These design professionals are concerned about how high-speed rail could be a catalyst for better urban design and transit-oriented development in Los Angeles. They've issued a call for ideas for high-speed rail stations, videos, and design to populate a traveling design exhibit about high-speed rail in the coming year. Check out their website and submit your idea.
