Research Trips MAA2013/14 // Emergent Territories in L.A.

This week the Research Studios are all off on Research Trips around the world.

Emergent Territories is in L.A. this week, with the objective of discovering the opportunities of a territory in a context of unprecedented urban growth with high density and congestion.
