Retro future: Los Angeles, 2013 (as viewed from 1986)
The L.A. times has posted a full-length feature article they ran in a (now defunct) L.A. Times Magazine issue that looked ahead to the year 2013. The Syd Mead-ish cover artwork alone is cool enough for it's own post.
I'm a sucker for these retro/paleo future type articles. Especially when they use nifty architectural renderings of "the future". The article covers how Los Angelenos would commute, do business, and enjoy leisure in a quarter century's time. Fun stuff!
Check out the fully scanned pages at the L.A. Times.
