“Never Before Seen: An Exercise in Imaginary Transportation Systems” Hosted by HEYA at siteLA

On Tuesday, August 27th, Quiksilver and HEYA, Toyota’s online creative collaboration community, hosted an interactive workshop as a part of the ongoing exhibition “From Here To There: A HEYA Project”. Using a medley of recycled materials, the eclectic group of Angelenos in attendance were introduced to an innovative way to articulate transportation and land use ideas. Participants ran through a hands-on exercise that used 3-dimentional forms to discuss transportation systems and their land use impacts. First creating idealized individual designs, participants then came together in small groups to resolve aesthetic and systematic differences to create collaborative models.

In other words…arts and crafts with a message!
