Research + Mapping

Throughout the first term, our studio task has been to research Los Angeles County as part of the UCLA Sustainable Los Angeles Initiative whose mission statement is to “achieve sustainability in energy and water while enhancing ecosystem health in Los Angeles County by 2050.”  See the official SLA website here.  SLA is comprised of experts and researches from disciplines and departments across the campus.  Our mission has been to uncover the problems and overlaps across these disciplines and develop both macro and micro strategies that could allow for the 2050 goals to be reached.

For example: If you saved the amount you spent on a latte a day for ten years, you could install solar panels on your roof.
