Learning from Koreatown

Koreatown’s cool old buildings point to L.A.’s future – LA Times.

Great account of koreatown’s relationship to historic buildings and evolving fabric of LA.

“If K-town increasingly resembles an empire on the march, gobbling up new territory by the week, it is not an empire made of bricks and mortar. It is a net draped over the existing cityscape, a net of signage and light, easily stretched and infinitely expandable. It fills, cloaks or remakes spaces in the city others had abandoned or forgotten about.”
