This is a visual exploration of the constructed landscape of Los Angeles from the top – as it spans vastly across the natural landscape – represented through an overlay of roads and topography.
Sublime in its expanse, the Los Angeles urban landscape expands uninterrupted and flat – quite flat – until it hits a foothill, wraps around it, and climbs up like a reverse tributary. The urban landscape cuts, then exits, finally resting on flat plains again. Planned, carved, delineated, clustered, scattered, and at all times well-networked…a vast land of infrastuctural ecological systems. From an aerial perspective it’s quite beautiful in its entirety, your sense of time, distance, scale, and space distorted by its enormity.
