GRAPHICS tell the story. The team from CalArts that produced this garden map of Greater Los Angeles are finalists in the Inaugural Aspen Design Challenge to Design Water’s Future.

To the right are the zones for the region’s drought-tolerant native vegetation. Posting compliments of Craig Matsuda at SoCal Minds.
