"Another of the projects on display at On the Road focused its experimentation on the Los Angeles neighborhood of Mt. Washington. The Foundation for Architecture and Design, led by Grey Crowell, is working in collaboration with Extraordinary Real Estate in Highland Park to develop nine vacant lots in and around Mt. Washington. "We see this as an opportunity to investigate housing design in a way similar to the Case Study Houses developed in LA in the 1940-60's," according to Crowell. For On the Road, Ffaad produced a series of elevation drawings to "approximate a dream and reality coming together," says Crowell, while still conforming to the requirements of zoning and the topography of the site."
