GOOD Magazine "The Los Angeles Issue" (Ausgabe 023)


In issue 23 of GOOD magazine, we study critical issues facing global cities by looking through the lens of Los Angeles. Can we turn this swollen beast into a healthy, 21st-century city? If we can do it here, we can do it anywhere.

"If I close my eyes and picture L.A., all i can see is one big varicose vein." When Marilyn Monroe uttered that wonderfully unpleasant line to Trueman Capote, she captured the grotesque beauty of one of the world's strangest cities; clogged, expanding, and straining at its physical limits.

When we close our eyes and picture anything, all we can see is LA.A. it's a place of borrows nostalgia for thousands of fictional sunsets; a stand-in for far-flung coastlines and fantastical worlds; a land of competition, contradiction, and (often maligned) creativity. And as much as any city in the world, it's a product of the 20th century, from its infrastructure to its industries to its insistence on doing everything it does with the help of a car. The challenges facing L.A. are the same as those facing any city in the developed world- just more so.
