For 2012, AIA|LA has programmed its annual Design Conference to recalibrate architect's understanding of the potential for place and practice emerging from dramatic changes in technology and culture within a slowly recuperating economy. It is one thing for the profession to aspire to enhance social, cultural and economic value and another to take advantage of new tools, strategies and opportunities to achieve it. This symposium opens up discussion on how we can accelerate how that might be done....

The American Institute of Architecture, Los Angeles (AIA|LA) encourages the Los Angeles City Council to unanimously support the Modified Parking Requirements District Ordinance (MPRD), which will enable the City of Los Angeles to implement much needed parking policy reforms.

The proposed ordinance will provide flexibility with regards to parking requirements throughout Los Angeles by enabling specific districts to customize the parking regulations best suited for the immediate neighborhood. With a city as vast and as diverse as Los Angeles, parking policy cannot be regulated with a one-size fits all approach because excessive parking requirements impair our ability to have a vibrant, sustainable and healthy city.

The Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|LA) has been tracking the recent legislative initiatives to reform the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and encourages policymakers to continue initiating true and meaningful CEQA reform. Taken together, SB 292 (Padilla), AB 900 (Buchanan) and SB 226 (Simitian) represent pro-active measures that will eventually lead to a broader consensus with business and environmental interests in effort to repair CEQA regulations that often do more environmental harm than good. The three bills are only a first step, though. More substantial reforms are needed to ensure that smart regulations facilitate the development of a healthier and more sustainable built environment....

On behalf of the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|LA), I would like to convey our support for the Department of City Planning's proposed Core Findings Ordinance. The proposed ordinance will help clarify language in the City's zoning code, making it more consistent and transparent, which will in turn create a better understanding of expectations of the planning process. We also support the ordinance's intent to consolidate common findings within the code. The ordinance will clarify ambiguities, remove redundancies and inconsistencies, and eliminate out-dated terminology. This important first step in improving the zoning code will also allow more time for planners to perform essential planning functions. Allowing planners to work more effectively and establishing more consistent land-use regulations for developers to work from, will result in better projects and a stronger and more livable Los Angeles...
On behalf of the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|LA), we are writing to express our strong support for the Modified Parking Requirements District Ordinance, which will enable the City of Los Angeles to implement much needed parking policy reforms. The proposed ordinance will provide flexibility with regards to parking requirements through out Los Angeles by enabling specific districts to customize the parking regulations that work best for the immediate neighborhood. With a city as vast and as diverse as Los Angeles, parking policy can not be regulated with a one-size fits all approach because, unfortunately, excessive or misaligned parking requirements often impair our ability to have a vibrant, sustainable and healthy city. The MPRD ordinance will enable greater flexibility so that specific areas of the city can benefit with a more custom-tailored approach to parking regulations....
The proposed revisions will help streamline specific sections of the zoning code and ensure more predictability in the development process by clarifying language regarding the "utilization" of approvals. The revisions will create more consistent procedures for the review of projects that require multiple approvals and will "synchronize" expiration dates of approvals in the effort to maximize efficiencies within the Planning Department....

The health evidence continues to mount: obesity rates, obesity-related chronic diseases and costs associated with treating these diseases are all growing. How can transformations in the planning and design of communities, streets, and buildings help address this growing epidemic? In addition to inspiring people to be more physically active, healthier community design can reduce air pollution and injuries, attract people and businesses, grow economic development, and create jobs. More than ever, people are putting a premium on places that offer transportation choices, recreation opportunities, and healthy, fresh food options....
Commission began at a Park...
On behalf of AIA|LA, thank you for the opportunity to provide suggestions for streamlining the development approval process within the City of Los Angeles. The following suggestions have been culled from our members who work on the front lines every day in both Building & Safety and City Planning. We believe that the improvements in processing and code reform that we recommend are necessary to create a more reliable and predictable development process. These development reforms will help the City of Los Angeles reach its goals of economic growth, budgetary reductions, and a high quality of life for its citizens without sacrificing thoroughness or public safety....
In early December, LADBS General Manager Bud Ovrom and Planning Director Michael LoGrande invited AIA|LA to produce a comprehensive set of recommendations to help improve the planning process and development services. In turn, the AIA|LA Political Outreach Committee reached out to many in the profession and collated numerous ideas that will help make the overall process more efficient and predictable in an effort to save time and money for both the City and its citizens. We believe these planning and development reforms will help the City of Los Angeles remain economically competitive on the global stage by enabling more time to be focused on attaining design excellence. The City of Los Angeles has hired a consultant to identify the best way to implement reforms. They've coordinated several outreach sessions throughout February to solicit additional feedback and AIA|LA encourages you to get involved and participate in the discussion. Please make plans to attend one of the sessions....

The Department of Public Health embraces design as a pathway to address social and environmental conditions that contribute to ill health, and aims to replace those conditions with a new norm in which physical activity, safe recreation and healthy eating will become the easy choice for all residents of Los Angeles County. To maximize health benefits, schools should be designed to provide adequate space and amenities for healthy breakfast and lunch and physical education for students and to be a fitness resource to community members during non-school hours. Consumption of healthier school meals can be encouraged through strategies such as gradual changes in menu options, more prominent placement of fruits and vegetables, increased signage, and presentation techniques to improve the visual appeal of healthier products. Siting schools near residential neighborhoods (and a healthy distance from sources of pollution such as freeways or industrial facilities) helps promote physical activity, including walking or biking to and from school, while supporting smart growth and stronger communities, and avoiding adverse impacts on neighborhood traffic patterns....

"Our work is the outcome of three lines of inquiry that run in parallel during the design process. The first is intellectual and asks "What disciplinary questions can this work contribute to?" The second is sensorial and asks "In what ways does this work engage people?" The third is technical and asks "Where are the opportunities for ingenuity to produce novel structural, environmental and construction solutions that complement our intellectual and sensorial ambitions?" The resulting design work thus engages with multiple audiences: the academic community, an engaged public and craftspeople. This allows us to communicate our ideas through material practice."...

It is with great sadness that AIA Los Angeles shares news about the passing of our dear friend Maria O'Malley. Maria passed away this past Friday at the age of 59 in her home country of Sao Paulo, Brazil after a very brief battle with cancer. Maria was a longtime staff member of AIA|LA and worked at the Chapter for the better part of 15 years. Whether serving as our membership director, office coordinator or helping us put on two successful AIA National Conventions, everyone in the local architecture and design community knew and loved Maria. Callers to the AIA|LA Office were greeted by Maria's cheerful voice and if you weren't already friends with Maria before your call, you certainly were by the end of it. Her maternal nature made her a loving mentor to countless members, architecture students, ARE candidates, home tour docents and volunteers. When Maria officially left AIA|LA in 2009, she spent her remaining years in Florida as a translation and interpretation specialist. But no matter where she was, all throughout her life, Maria gave generously of her time to various charities and organizations. She always thought of others before herself and especially enjoyed sending care packages to orphans in Brazil. It goes without saying that Maria was deeply loved by her colleagues on the AIA|LA Staff as well as her friends and family from around the world and we offer our sincerest condolences to all who were touched by Maria's grace. It is fitting that a woman with such a huge heart would have been born on Valentine's Day and she will be greatly missed....

The Prototypical American City, Los Angeles, is at a crossroads. It has grown from distant communities of missionaries and rancheros to a diverse yet separated community of suburbs, and now to an unhappily-joined community of industries and sprawl. The growth of Los Angeles as a de-centralized city has created a playground for the automobile - where no less than a six lane freeway will do, massive parking lots litter the built environment, and traffic strikes fear into anyone looking to traverse the city. It has rendered a city incapable of movement, a place where the freeway no longer allows freedom, but instead has resulted in a life informed by sigalert and strangled by traffic....

Informed by intensive research and an experimental approach, the work engages material dynamics in the production of form to create a direct appeal to the senses.

Design is evolving away from the confines of traditional design output. The focus of design is designing/thinking/feeling for experience rather than only aesthetics; we need to design for meaning and purpose rather than only form or even what appears to be obvious function. This means developing a strategy for design as opposed to operating solely from intuition, and it means that many disciplines need to be involved as "designers"...

Landscape architecture plays one of the most critical roles in the re-envisioning and recalibrating of public spaces. Three terms that best describe the philosophies of Mia Lehrer + Associates are designing landscapes that inspire, creating places that matter, and using technologies that sustain. We aim to bring a powerful and dynamic vision to our projects that have the possibility of changing the way we think and experience places. We also strive to understand what it takes to deal with larger scale environmental issues and planning efforts that redesign the urban landscape. Committed to community building and collaborating across several disciplines, our goal is to creatively combine design solutions and unexpected experiences into spaces that embrace cultural legacies, promote innovative materials and techniques, and allow for adaptability developing viable and flexible public facilities to support both current and future generations....

On average we spend 2,400 hours per year at the office, spending six hours a day sitting at a desk. How can we improve health outcomes, increase productivity, and attract and retain good staff? How can we measure the impact of healthy building design to the occupants? The design of Hillman Hall for the Brown School of Social Work and Public Health at Washington University in St Louis redefines the traditional academic building. This newly completed “healthy” building case study will address the importance of integrating health and wellness into building and landscape design to increase opportunities for physical activity and enhanced student, faculty, and staff collaboration and social networks.

As the power and presence of artificial intelligence grows, and machines increasingly become autonomous, what work will be left for us, mere humans? With our occupations such a central part of how we see ourselves, the worker’s concern with AI is as much existential as it is economical. Our cities and lifestyle shall be impacted by the new technological change brought on by Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things, and it is incumbent on city planners and architects to anticipate a new urban culture based on extreme mobility, connectedness and tribal communities

The project is for two single-family dwellings for close friends who wish to live cooperatively rather
than in more typical LA isolation. The site slopes up steeply to the west from the street such that the
two houses are cut deeply into the hill for basements and garages. The main levels are reached through
a shared central exterior stair. Entry is from the common landing overlooking the street. The stair can
also be taken directly up into the garden. While the two houses have the same structure and materials,
the uniqueness of each family’s structure and interest is expressed in fundamentally different plan
arrangements and different interior finishes such that each house has its own character internally. This
is possible because the basic loft-like structure frames two-story spaces within which are placed
bedrooms as mezzanines. Both buildings are relatively closed to the street and open to the garden side
where overhanging balconies and canvas shade the glass walls. The skylights that run continuously
along the street balance the light through the interior especially in the two story living room and studio
spaces.

The Six offers 52 welcoming and supportive homes to individuals who have experienced homelessness, with 18 of them set aside specifically for veterans. In the military, “got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” Brooks + Scarpa’s innovative design thoughtfully balances privacy with opportunities to connect with the community. The Six has onsite supportive services and 24-hour property management on the ground floor, and community rooms and a spacious courtyard on the second floor that offer peaceful respite and space for social gatherings. Incorporating energy-efficiency measures that exceed standard practice, including passive design strategies that maximize natural light and airflow, the project received LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Located in MacArthur Park, The Six is a striking addition to a neighborhood that has one of highest population densities the United States. AIA National recognized The Six with a 2017 Institute Honor Award and 2017 Housing Design Award, and the project also received 2017 Design Honor Awards from AIA Los Angeles and AIA California Council. The Six demonstrates that housing based on the principals of Housing First and Design Equity can be applied in neighborhoods throughout the region to prevent and end homelessness.

The nature of our practice has changed with a higher proportion of renovation and re-use. Under the ADA Standards the
there are differing requirements for new construction versus alteration. Since these are federal laws local public agencies
can only offer limited direction. We will review criteria for existing facilities in regard to scoping to acquire a better
sense of the implications of the law and how it applies. We will cover a range of concepts such as Program
Accommodation vs Barrier Removal, Proportional Spending, Safe Harbor, and Path of Travel obligations.
SUMMARY
An overview of existing buildings for public entities & places of public accommodation per ADAS and CBC from Barrier
Removal to Program Accommodation including Alteration requirements whether or not construction is scheduled
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
• Understand differences between Public Facilities and Places of Public Accommodation
• Review the distinctions between Program Accessibility vs Barrier Removal and their impact
• Learn about Proportional Spending and Disproportionality with its application to Path of Travel requirements
• Overview Safe Harbor and when it can or can not be applied to existing elements

Accessible Routes or Path of Travel in new and existing projects are essential aspects of Accessible design. If you can not
even get to an area, no matter how accessible that portion is, it will still not be accessible...at least until we invent
teleportation. Not only is the route or path required to be accessible but there are many elements that are included
within the definition which also are required to be accessible. We will look at a broad view of these elements, as one
progresses from the street, thru the site, and into the buildings, touching on their various accessibility requirements.
SUMMARY
An overview of accessible routes, from the public way, to site amenities, to parking spaces, to the entry, and thru the
building to the exits including egress requirements from exit doors
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
• Understand what is required for an Accessible Route or Path of Travel
• Review the connectivity of elements, entries, floors, and exits
• Learn the scoping and technical requirements for components on both the exterior and interior
• Overview Path of Travel requirements in existing projects and alterations

Whether it is for parking, passenger drop-off, valet service, or transportation such as taxis, buses, or shuttles there are differing requirements for space and slopes, all or which is required to connect with an accessible route. There are also new requirements for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) per the CBC. We will review the requirements for each of these types of vehicular to pedestrian transitions.

The Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) is growing as a methodology for residential neighborhoods to regulate and provide oversight for all construction on both single and multi-family development. In many cases the emergence of the HPOZ is less about the historical character of a neighborhood, but rather as a response to “mansionization” and site density, as residential developers / homeowners build, what is perceived, as over scaled single and multi-family housing.

Healthcare facilities present unique fire protection/life safety challenges for design professionals due to the services and type of occupants accommodated in these facilities. Patients may be unable to evacuate themselves due to their medical condition or treatment received and appropriate design features must be introduced to achieve an adequate level of safety for such occupants during fire or other emergency events. This presentation will provide an overview of general fire protection/life safety concepts in healthcare facilities and a discussion of issues commonly encountered as well as strategies to mitigate these challenges. Topics presented will include CMS compliance and applicable codes/standards, jurisdiction (OSHPD vs. local), occupancy classifications, smoke compartments and defend-in-place strategy, means of egress, vertical openings, removal of acute care services, suites, and fire-rated construction, among others. The discussion will be based on the code requirements of the California Building Code (CBC) and NFPA 101, Life Safety Code and will also include a summary of 2016 CBC code changes related to healthcare occupancies.

Shortages of traditional building materials and craft skills after World War II forced the British to adopt new technologies in building restoration at an early date, amongst which GFRP, or glass fiber reinforced plastic (e.g., Fiberglass™), played a prominent role as a means to cheaply replicate missing components such as domes, cornices and other architectural features in attempted facsimile. John Fidler has been studying the characteristics and performance of the material in the field from an early date with periodic inspections to London sites. After more than 35 years of study of materials exposed now for over 50 years, he can offer definitive guidance on the material and its place in historic preservation

Though cancer mortality has decreased in recent years, cancer incidences continue to rise and are estimated to reach 2 million by 2024, according to the American Cancer Society. Rapid advancements in technology and research have opened doors to new forms of cancer treatment, leading to more personalized and precision care. Meanwhile, many cancer care organizations are facing the need to strike a balance between reducing operational and facility costs with the high cost of treatment, all while providing the highest quality care for their patients. As care coordination becomes more complex and competition rises, these organizations are working harder to ensure access to patients and provide comprehensive care programs. Hear how three different organizations – Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and Dignity Health – are responding to the changing climate of cancer care, and how it has impacted their facilities.

The LEED Gold-certified Life Sciences Building at Loyola Marymount University is a modern teaching facility for biology, chemistry and natural science. A variety of collaborative environments promote connectivity and openness. The program includes undergraduate teaching and research labs, student-supported faculty research labs, classrooms, conference space, offices, shared public spaces, a 280-seat auditorium, and a subterranean parking structure. The project objectives of achieving interdisciplinary collaboration, sustainability, and connectivity informed the design process, resulting in a prominent campus building that serves as a teaching tool for sustainable practices and other learning experiences through “science on display”. Built to the street-side property line, the Life Sciences Building establishes an urban presence, and the design creates an animated courtyard and gardens. A green roof rises three levels, continuing the courtyard presence and further engaging pedestrians.

Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) Facilities Development Division (FDD) is responsible for enforcing building standards, per the California Building Standards Code, as they relate to health facilities construction. FDD reviews and inspects health facility construction projects. Part of the review process requires the review of all plans, specifications and supporting documentation to ensure compliance with applicable codes and regulations. Historically, reviews are manually completed on printed blue prints which must be shipped to and from design firms. These plans can be thousands of pages weighing hundreds or even thousands of pounds. This costs the facilities almost $1.00 per sheet for each printing and costs OSHPD about $150,000 annually in shipping costs. FDD has a 60/30/30 turnaround goal program requiring first review of New Projects and Deferred Items within 60 days, review of Back-checks within 30 days and Amended Construction Documents within 30 days.

Sustainability at City Hall SOM Presents The New United States Courthouse Case Study
06-Apr-201606-Apr-2016
aia
Located on a prominent block in downtown Los Angeles, the New United States Courthouse’s design has a strong civic presence rooted in classic principles driven by environmental performance and sustainable strategies. The courthouse’s design optimizes the potential of natural light through the integration of a high-performance, pleated glass façade, spatial and programmatic organization and advanced technology. Targeting LEED Platinum certification and the GSA’s 2020 energy target of 35K/BTU/GSF annual consumption, sustainability is evident in every aspect of the project, from the drought-tolerant landscaping of its plaza to the rooftop photovoltaic array that is expected to generate 500,000 kWh annually.

Public education is a bond between a community and its young people, its future leaders. Honoring that bond means providing not only outstanding instruction but also functional facilities. Having safe, healthy, modern school buildings is a cornerstone to the children’s success. Schools belong to all people and are used by the entire community.

17-Jul-201617-Jul-2016

Similar to all of (fer) Studio's projects, the design of the house evolved through an intensive on going collaborative exchange of ideas and directions with the client. The most important design request the client required was a home with a lot of natural light. We wanted to achieve a flood of natural light through the center of the home so the design solution was a linear split (continuous linear skylight) spanning through the length of it. This prompted offsetting the second floor circulation from the first floor creating a continuous two-story volume of open space, naturally lit from above. This split became a central organizational spine, a main feature to the project. It naturally tracks the suns east/west path throughout the day, providing an ever changing sequence of daylighting experiences, as well as defining the main circulation route within.

Los Angeles has evolved into a creative, productive, world-class city. Yet, currently, LA is experiencing a severe housing shortage, and has become one of the least affordable places to live. As a consequence, over 44,000 people in the Los Angeles County sleep nightly without shelter.
Since the delivery of shelter as a fundamental human need is literally embedded in the architecture profession’s DNA, now, more than ever before, is the time for architects and designers to come together to explore the problem in depth and identify strong, workable solutions to solving our housing crisis.

Nestled in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, the private residence of architect Dan Brunn, AIA, became an expression of his signature style. The house was transformed from a typical 1950s Los Angeles bungalow into a minimalist retreat. The remodeling process delicately balanced a nostalgic façade while transforming the interior spaces to accommodate present-day domestic activities with a clean, open-air feeling. Brunn’s design aesthetic is evident in his utilization of provocative spatial choreography and harmonious connections between light and volume.

DTLA) is on the verge of a breakthrough moment. It is becoming more livable, walkable and enjoyable as we speak. But what's missing? A multidisciplinary panel at the A+D Museum examines the promise of DTLA almost a decade after the museum's seminal show Enlightened Development asked the question, How do we foster a "sustainable downtown revitalization"? What should Los Angeles learn from other cities where a similar downtown renaissance has taken place?

Water is life, and its sustained delivery comes at an increasing financial and environmental cost. The best way to conserve water is to use it twice. Greywater is lightly-used water from bathing and laundry that can be recaptured and used a second time for landscape irrigation. This saves water, saves money, reduces your carbon footprint, preserves remote aquatic ecosystems, reduces load on sewer and septic systems, protects the bay, and is now perfectly legal. This seminar will provide an overview of Greywater: what it is, how it works, and how to incorporate it into your projects.

The screens, made of bronze anodized aluminum, were water jet cut for precise and patterned variable apertures, referencing the original home’s precast concrete window grills. The screens open like shutters for clear views of the property, and when shut, allow for privacy, sun shading and environmental control.

Westside Urban Forum: "A Review of Design Review"
22-Jan-201622-Jan-2016
community
The rapid pace of development in Southern California has erased countless well crafted buildings and replaced them with structures unbecoming a great city. Design Review, by which the public sector becomes the arbiter of taste, has become a popular way of combating this trend -- and controlling the entire development process.

On the one hand, design review ensures that someone is paying attention. On the other hand, design review by its very nature can force projects into a homogenized design aesthetic, dictated not by architectural vision but rather by community standards. And it is often enforced by planners who have little or no architectural training.
