Elysian Los Angeles LA Mas

LA-Más is a nonprofit that performs design-based experiments with the city as their lab. As a means of facilitation through storytelling, LA-Más held a block party in Elysian Valley in which they partnered with the Elysian Valley Neighborhood Watch to have a temporary street closure across the street from the Yardin del Rio. As an added layer, they also constructed bulletin boards that attached to city signage (stop, school, yield signs, etc.) and a crosswalk done with construction marking paint to leave infrastructure after the event for the community. Elizabeth Timme is co-founder and leads the LA-Más office, working on projects that seek to establish the potential for design-based outcomes in community health. Timme will join Seleta Reynolds onstage at Dwell on Design Los Angeles to discuss these street-specific projects.
