CARMEN C. CHAM, JAMES BLACK & TYLER GOSS. The “Microparcelization” project advocates replacing Dingbats with small single-family homes on small lots, to be made possible by new mechanism for subdividing parcels, and to be promoted by an updated version of the Case Study House program.
Dense-Mix Prototype for Palms, Los Angeles
Our project for Dingbat 2.0 proposes a Variegated Mat-scape™ as a prototype for generating spatial, programmatic, and material variation.
Alternate solutions that allow Dingbats to more actively and sustainably serve their residents, their communities and the public realm will be required if Los Angeles is to meet the demands of its residential future.
This proposal examines five key issues (STREET, SITE, CAR, HOUSING TYPOLOGY, AND RESIDENTIAL OCCUPATION) that when addressed together form the basis for a 21st century infill neighborhood.
As a reinvention of the distinctively regional dingbat typology, our proposal seeks to maximize the quality of life for residents within the increasingly dense future of the City.
