The folks over at NotNeutral have released a series of porcelain dinner plates featuring 4 cities that were chosen “for their reputations as gateways, and for the way each is dealing with the effects of agglomeration as its population begins to reach critical mass.” In addition to our lovely city, Shanghai, Cairo, and Berlin were also lucky enough to be plated. About the above NotNeutral writes:
The Los Angeles plate is ringed with freeways. A deep green mass represents Dodger Stadium and Elysian Park, and key buildings in the historic core are highlighted in red. The city, thanks to its youth and love of the automobile, has developed in a singular way unlike the traditional condensed urban cores of east coast cities.
If you want one, they are taking preorders now, although the site says they will be available in early Feb. [Thanks Till]
