Center for Land Use Interpretation


From the CLUI exhibit Loop Feedback Loop:
The Big Picture of Traffic Control In Los Angeles

The Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) is, “Dedicated to the increase and diffusion of information about how the nation’s lands are apportioned, utilized, and perceived.”

Additionally, “The organization was founded in 1994, and since that time it has produced over 30 exhibits on land use themes and regions, for public institutions all over the United States, as well as overseas. Public tours have been conducted in several states, and over ten books have been published by the CLUI. CLUI Archive photographs illustrate journals, popular magazines, and books by other publishers, and have been used in non-CLUI exhibitions, and acquired by art collectors.”

The site also includes The CLUI Land Use Database, “an on-line computer database of unusual and exemplary sites throughout the United States. It is a free public resource, designed to educate and inform the public about the function and form of the National landscape, a terrestrial system that has been altered to accommodate the complex demands of our society.”
