Proposal for L.A. Forum's Liner Competition

with Jisun Lee

This budget-sensitive design to renovate The L.A. Forum calls for rolling gondolas detailed with re-configurable components.  Their site-specific geometry allows them to assemble for a variety of different 'micro-programs' within the space. Modularity and material flexibility trump any overriding aesthetic theme, with much of the project possible using standard shop stock.
