Viewing Platforms at Los Angeles Gated “Communities”

As a recent refugee from LA, this project caught my attention and admiration: “Like the historic viewing platforms at the Berlin Wall that allowed Westerners to see into East Berlin, the Heavy Trash viewing platforms call attention to the walls of gated communities and provide visual access to parts of the city that have been cut off from the public domain.” I always wondered what was going on with these privatized streets, and I still don’t know how the city can give away public property to private interests.
