Description: 

Initiated in 1986 on the Hayden Tract, a former industrial site bounding Central Los Angeles and Culver City, Conjunctive Points—The New City began as simple additions and subtractions to an existing collection of warehouses. Ultimately, the project set contemporary standards for adaptive reuse, launched the concept of creative office space, and positioned architecture as a method to uncover new social and civic opportunities. It also highlights a decades-long urban reimagining project in Culver City and central Los Angeles and a new model for revitalization.
