Los Angeles City Repair Tour 2010 with Mark Lakeman 

September 28, 2010 by: Michael Cook

Transforming Public Space: A Street Corner Revolution!

Join visionary architect Mark Lakeman as he inspires and guides the grid structure of a typical American city into a vital social commons with Portland’s City Repair Project.

Now a national movement, City Repair is about cities, towns, grids and the intersections where our lives can converge by literally inserting villages into cities. Multidisciplinary, City Repair combines architecture, urban planning, anthropology, community development, public art, permaculture and ecological design in projects that transform public space.
