Where the Empire Meets It — Kanel Suos
This is a re-imagining of the intersection of Imperial Highway and Sepulveda Blvd. in El Segundo, just South of LAX International Airport. Appropriately, the airport sets the stage for this vision of a new form of transportation. In a world with no/fewer cars, people will take flight with their very own balloons bringing color to LA’s otherwise smoggy skies. And where else would we park our balloons but former car lots (bottom right).
And like a dragon-dog rising out of the ashes, FedEx revives its business model in a post-car world by re-branding itself as “FedExcelsior!” after spending billions of dollars to bio-engineer a fleet of delivery-luck-dragon-dogs dubbed Falcor Fleet 1. No gas needed to fuel these bearded beauties; just pizza and luck.
And now that the ancient empty streets are too dead for driving, LA County has gone green by laying solar panels on the inside lanes of all former freeways, creating the world’s most vast and ginormous network of solar power panels; dumping its reliance on non-renewable energy sources along the way. Ever Beyond, LA!
