Looking back a century at LA

Taylor Yard in 1897
Client:   UCLA Institute on the Environment and Sustainability

Frequent collaborator Jon Christensen, of UCLA's Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies, asked us to develop a simple interactive map to let readers peel back more than a century of history at Taylor Yard, a crucial parcel along the Los Angeles River. The parcel is at the heart of an unfolding story about revitalization, gentrification, and urban nature.

The map we developed was part of a feature package developed in a collaboration between LENS, NPR-affiliate KCET, and the Atlantic's CityLab blog. 

Small projects like this come in and ship quickly, and often without much mention from us. But we love doing them, especially when the results can help shape public discourse on important topics like urban habitat, gentrification, and access to nature within cities.
