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.

More substantial reforms are needed to ensure that smart regulations facilitate the development of a healthier and more sustainable built environment....

Edible gardens and urban farms help provide access to safe, healthy and affordable food to underserved neighborhoods throughout our City. They enliven our streetscapes and add verdancy to our urban realm. Edible gardens educate children about the sources of their diets and encourage more people to eat healthier and more sustainably.

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....

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.

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.

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.

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....

"The work of Hirsuta promotes a disciplined formalism with a distinctly sensate bias. 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. Architecture's vitality requires more of its objects than mere visual presence; they must endeavor toward effervescent forms of engagement such that they nearly cling to the skin of those moving through them." - Jason Payne...

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....

I wonder whether we are massively behind the curve -- witness our stalemated political system and budget deficits -- or whether we are just the first to experience significant social, political and economic change, as California is often first, the leader. We forget that we once had the most advanced privately financed and operated transit system of any region in the country in our red car/streetcar system. It was built and operated with private capital and was a real estate investment without which houses would have not sold. We move to automobiles when they became affordable and promoted our personal freedom. Times change, people learn...and I wonder if California -- through it's mega-regions and cities -- have the opportunity to be the next wave of smart growth that is coupled with personal freedom...kind of our DNA?...

In Los Angeles, the time has come to get serious about where we want to encourage density. "Density Everywhere" is not meaningful planning policy, and it undermines the success of mass transit, particularly rail, and efforts to curb greenhouse gases generated by car trips. Some people don't fear density so much as they fear unmanaged, unplanned growth ... the notion that a community plan can be overridden in a minute without due consideration including regard for infrastructure, public services and design....
To maximize our investment in transportation improvements, change must simultaneously happen on three fronts: behavioral, operational and physical. The concept 'If we build it they will use it' would be a costly catastrophe if there is not parallel behavioral change. If you would like people to abandon the mode of transport they have been using for years, education and incentives must encourage that change. On the operational front, zoning may need to change in order for more integrated mixed use development. And the physical changes, of course, are obvious. You can build the best light rail system in the world, but if it drops people a mile from their destination, the project is a waste. To have a well used transportation system, the process must be well integrated and well planned, from start to finish....
When I was a student in Vienna, we often spent the weekend in Venice. There is a direct train connection between those cities, with one of the trains running overnight. The distance is about 390 miles, the train left at 9 pm, it had a dining car and sleeper berths. It was fairly inexpensive, with a student pass. We had dinner on the train, slept and arrived at 5 am right on the Canale Grande, in the heart of Venice. Many many students traveled the same way, so you got to meet new people and spend two days in one of the prettiest cities with little cost or stress....
We can maximize our investment in the next round of transit improvements by insuring that the proposed alignments and station locations for new systems offer the very best connectivity and convenience for transit users. For example, the Crenshaw Line as planned features a northern terminus at the Exposition Line and a southern Terminus at LAX. It is imperative that the design of the transit user's experience transferring from the Crenshaw Line to the Expo Line is seamless, safe, and convenient. Likewise, at the LAX station, the design of the transfer system from the Crenshaw Line to the Airport transit system (people mover, tram, etc.) must be seamless and convenient to insure maximum use by business travellers and commuters....

In order to address one of its most pressing issues, the City of Los Angeles has begun a citywide effort to update its transportation plan, the Mobility Element of the General Plan. Last updated in 1999, the Mobility Element (formerly the Transportation Element) is now being updated to reflect the policies and programs that will give Angelenos a full range of options including bicycling, walking, carpooling, and transit, to meet their mobility needs. The City seeks to integrate complete street principles in the new Mobility Element in order to address the issues that impact all users of the transportation system....

Although restrooms have been around forever and the new ADA Standards for over a couple of years, we still have facilities with restrooms that are not completely compliant. The major question is, why? Is it designer? Builder? Or is it an on- going maintenance issue? Each component within a restroom has a myriad of requirements needing to fit together like a puzzle. We will take an in-depth look at the technical Access requirements and how it impacts restroom design, whether single or multi-accommodation.

In this day and age we are not only pedestrians but we are also closely tied to vehicular transportation. And of course there are a myriad of requirements for this as well, starting from the point where we are transitioning from passengers to pedestrians. 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. We will review the requirements for each of these types of vehicular to pedestrian transitions.

We will cover a range of concepts such as Program Accommodation vs Barrier Removal, Proportional Spending, Safe Harbor, and Path of Travel obligations.

For someone who has a disability or is elderly, ascending or descending across levels is a key mobility challenge. We often address this by providing an element such as a ramp or elevator that takes people from one level to another but often these features alone do not solve the problem. We will look at options such as sloped walkways, curb ramps, pe- destrian ramps, elevators, and lifts. We will also examine the parameters and requirements for each of these elements, as well as how to design and situate them for optimum access.

Hotels, motels, inns, and restaurants are one of the more involved building types. Not only do guest rooms have a myr- iad of parameters but there are a number of other diverse elements, each with their own set of requirements found within one facility. It is not atypical to find retail and restaurants, pools and fitness rooms, business and banquet facilities not to mention valet service and hotel shuttles for even more complexity. We will review the varying requirements both from a scoping perspective and a technical viewpoint.

Once you step thru the door into the interior of a building you encounter a countless number of different elements, each with its own parameters, and all are connected by an accessible route. There are requirements not only for the item itself but also how it relates to the facility as a whole. Whether we are talking about furniture or cabinetry, drinking fountains or sinks, machines or telephones, restaurant or assembly seating, they are all overlaid with their own requirements relat- ing to reach ranges, clear floor space, and operating force. We will review a number of these elements regarding their technical and scoping requirements to better increase our language and understanding for accessible design.

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 tele- portation. 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.

Filmmakers and architects share the capacity to set stories in place. While filmmakers seek locations to unfold narratives, architects design buildings to support narratives. Los Angeles provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on this reciprocal relationship to the city. Through its robust film industry, the city of Los Angeles has demonstrated the capacity to transform its character from highly specific to virtually anonymous. Los Angeles demonstrates the many, diverse global contexts in which architects work. This event will feature architects, filmmakers, and authors/educators reflecting on their creative work as they set spaces for narratives in the city.

As historic preservation and adaptive re-use of existing buildings feature ever-more strongly in the mainstream of architectural practice, methods to clean masonry facades in a benign and cost effective manner need to be better understood as part of the PRMAI (preservation, repair, maintenance and improvements) skill sets of those concerned with condition assessments, design and specification work. Many famous buildings have been butchered by well-meaning but inappropriate cleaning techniques.

In 2005 the City of Los Angeles created the Small Lot Ordinance to meet the growing need for new housing and lower the barrier to home ownership in the city. By introducing compact single-family housing types on smaller-sized lots, the Ordinance was intended to encourage moderate residential density as a strategy for infill development based on smart growth principles. Now, nearly a decade later, what are the results of the Ordinance, and has it met its goals? What has worked and where does some of the work remain to reach these goals?

Join us for a tour of First Congregational Church of Los Angeles Founded in 1867 and is the oldest Protestant church in continuous service in Los Angeles. The present cathedral style building is the church's fifth home and was completed in 1932. It was designed by Los Angeles architects James E. and David C. Allison in the gothic revival style and built of reinforced concrete. The construction was very forward-looking for its day. Imbedded in the concrete are over 500 tons of steel bars. The entire structure, including Shatto Chapel and the Seaver Building, encompasses an area of 157,000 square feet. At its apex is a massive tower, which rises to a height of 157 feet. Its design is reminiscent of the tower of Oxford University's Magdalen College.
