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....

We believe that it is possible to create an architecture that is both practical and profound, both unique and inevitable, familiar to the body and unfamiliar to the eyes. the spaces created have the potential of being inspiring and a trigger to integrate memory and imagination, Specific projects in our diverse body of work, has taught us how to do this. The native Americans taught us how to listen with all of our senses, the Buddhists taught us how to see with a 'beginners mind', Artists taught us how to conceive with imagination, Scientists taught us how to take measure of the physical world, and Humanists taught us what the true evolutionary imperatives are....

The City of Fullerton Community Development Department is pleased to invite submittals for the consulting position of "Town Architect". Late last year the City of Fullerton adopted the Fullerton Transportation Center Specific Plan (FTCSP). This transit-oriented development plan establishes the vision, goals and development standards for nearly 40 acres of public and private property in and near Fullerton's Downtown. The FTCSP is an innovated planning document, and will serve as a model for California planning.

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?...

She writes about design, architecture, cities, transportation and walking for many publications, including GOOD and Fast Company, and is the associate producer for the public radio show "DnA: Design and Architecture."

In downtown Long Beach there is a shuttle service call Passport that provide trips to many of Long Beach points of interest like the Aquarium of the Pacific , Queen Mary , Convention Center and many others.

With funds for operations and expansion arteries of buses and communities shuttles LA could be a city with a first class bus systems that connect the total populations to education, health care, job opportunities as well a recreation....
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....

Whether you live, work or play in the City of Los Angeles, everyone agrees - Los Angeles can do better with its transportation system. 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....

Disney’s iconic theme parks and structures transport guests to many imaginative times and places. Providing an inside look at the Disney theme park design process, this presentation will share how these unique structures come to be, and highlight lessons learned that can be applied by creative design teams to enhance the aesthetic of any project. While operating in different locations worldwide, the constants of safety, Disney quality, and guest experience must be assured at the highest level. Using examples from the various parks from the original 1950’s Disneyland in Anaheim, California to the most recent park completed in Shanghai, China - Mr. Estes will discuss how Disney’s unique design and construction practices address local infrastructure codes and the incredible diversity of site conditions. And with the variety of facilities contained within a single Disney theme park, from retail and restaurants to rides and theaters, the overlap between static buildings and moving ride-based systems will certainly make this a dynamic conversation. While your everyday projects may not entail rushing water, high speed rides, or floating through time, the discussion of Disney’s design processes and collaboration efforts among the varied project consultants will provide lessons that each of us can use to make every project a success.

Fender Headquarters in Hollywood

DATE: Wednesday, December 6, 2017
TIME: 6:00 – 8:30 pm
PLACE: 1575 N Gower Street, Los Angeles (Columbia Square)

A discreet red neon sign reading Fender announces this iconic company on Gower between Hollywood and Sunset. Designed by Rapt Studio, Fender’s headquarters is only steps away from other music and entertainment giants in the neighborhood. The new HQ occupies two unique buildings: 24,500 sq. ft. on two floors in a contemporary mid-rise building, and 8,600 sq. ft. in an adjacent 1940s adaptive reuse that Fender has dubbed the Bungalow.

The first building is home to the executive, sales, and marketing teams, and the public is welcome to explore a museum-like installation and feature wall upon entering. A polished white Fender guitar finds a home in the white on white feature wall, welcoming visitors to play any time. Simply said by Rapt, “The look is professional, intentionally not too rock ’n’ roll.” The polished concrete floor and generally neutral finishes are the perfect backdrop to collections of vibrantly colored Fender guitars, the real art in the space.

The Bungalow has a completely different personality and is home to Fender product development. The building is the adaptive reuse of a 1940s sound stage and although largely new, the original wooden bow trusses were retained along with a 30-foot ceiling (shown above). It’s a magical space and at this time of year, and one might think it doubles as one of Santa’s workshop. The design of the space was influenced by the sleek contours, niche colors, and finely tuned hardware of Fender guitars—while still taking into account the workflow and product development process unique to the teams at Fender. Leo Fender, the inventor and craftsman who founded in 1946, would likely be very proud that Fender Musical Instruments Corporation continues its legacy here.

The tour will be conducted by Sam Farhang, President and Creative Director of Rapt Studios.

Tours: Mulholland Drive Residence
15-Nov-201715-Nov-2017
aia
The restoration and expansion of the Ward House, a landmarked Bel Air residence on Mulholland Drive, doubles its livable space while emphasizing thoughtful proportions and sight lines. It was paramount to preserve the integrity of the historic house, originally designed by Case Study architect Rodney Walker in 1954, but to give it a distinctly contemporary feel.
True to the scale and simplicity of the original structure, the annex is carefully nested in the hillside. New and old are connected only via a concrete bridge, a catwalk library that meets the second floor of the Walker house on natural grade. With its top floor cantilevered above the hillside and reoriented to capture distant mountain views, the annex footprint remains contained and distinct from the old house.
While employing current building technology to achieve a contemporary architectural solution, the new construction takes cues from the historic house – honoring the Case Study philosophy of economy in which the skin of a building derives from its structure, and of pure materials thoughtfully applied in context. So the lower level walls are exposed cast in place concrete, while the cantilevered section is a steel frame with cement board cladding (exterior) and ash paneling (interior). Features like the custom formed retaining wall, built to resemble the original house’s cladding, embeds its memory, creating an aesthetic that links past to future.
Both commanding and discreet, maximizing the flow of natural light and air, and pushing the concept of indoor/outdoor living, the annex is airborne over the property and open to extensive views.
Designed by Andrea Lenardin, principal of a l m project, a Los Angeles-based practice with an eye to the broader domain of placemaking.
In their residential work a l m project recognizes and challenges the convention of strictly coded domestic spaces, actively seeking imaginative design solutions that enable the fusion of live/work and simply inspire to “live more”.

Stepping Thru
Doors, Gates, & Signs, and What Makes Them Accessible

DESCRIPTION
Just about every facility has a door or gate that can either welcome us into a building or act as a hindrance. We will review door and gate requirements from clearances and specifications to operating hardware, including automatic opening devices. The requirements vary depending upon the type of entry and whether it is swinging, sliding, pocket, or just an opening. There are power-assist, low energy, and automatic doors and gates which have further requirements over and above manual doors. As always, the approach has impact on spatial parameters. We will additionally review permanent room signs which are associated with doors and also have impact on spatial requirements.

SUMMARY
Just about every facility has a door that can either welcome us into a building or act as a hindrance — we will review door, gate, and opening requirements from clearances and specifications to operating hardware, including automatic opening devices and permanent room signage

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Understand different door types and hardware including specialty doors and their parameters
Review door clear floor space requirements dependent upon approach and door type
Learn about various sign components along with their technical requirements
Overview different sign types in general and their installation requirements

Complete Communities: A Primer on Urban Design, Architecture, and Planning
This meeting will serve as a forum to review, provide critical feedback and further discussion of a primer in PowerPoint form that the architectural community can take to the public - such as neighborhood councils, high schools, planning commissions, etc. - to help give them a framework for understanding the key elements that go into urban design, architecture, and planning. In part, this was developed in collaboration with METRO Los Angeles to provide the public an understanding of complete communities and a language to facilitate more informed discussions around the development of our neighborhoods. We welcome questions around content, format and how to speak about density vis a vis the future of our regional development.

Join us for a very special panel + tour throughout South LA that features the work of Lehrer Architects LA and Darin Johnstone Architects in collaboration wit SCI-Arc students!

The ‘IVRV’ house is the result of a collaboration between Southern California Institute of Architecture and Habitat for Humanity of greater Los Angeles. It represents the mergence of two complimentary missions; to educate Architects who will imagine and shape the future and to provide simple, decent, affordable housing for all. The house is intended to challenge the status quo of sustainable / affordable housing in both form and content. The SCI Arc student designed and constructed house (directed by Darin Johnstone) strives to answer a typical residential program in an unexpected way.

The unique characteristics of the house are the result of two main drivers. The design strives to create a sanctuary in a neighborhood where crime and violence are still a concern while synthesizing sustainable features into an overall aesthetic. What appears to be the front of the house is a thickened threshold to an indoor-outdoor entry court protected from the realities of the street by ‘eco-screens’ that shelter the area with a new kind of trellis designed to shade the courtyard, capture energy and clean the air.

The form of the house comes from an exploration of an unadorned two-story gable roof profile that was transformed to create a livable home and protected outdoor area capitalizing on the full benefits of the California climate and lifestyle. Habitat for Humanity works to create decent, safe, affordable homes for every man woman and child. With this project, we strove to create something that was also delightful, sustainable and inspiring.

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

Silver Star Apartments is an affordable housing development for veterans, which includes cutting edge sustainability features, including delivered zero net energy and gray water recycling. The project aims to meet the “Living Building Challenge” in addition to LEED and Energy Star requirements and pays special attention to the solar orientation of each façade. The design of the development is a direct correlation between solar passive design and aggressive sustainability goals. Mostly comprised of one-bedroom units, a mix of courtyards and a community facility, the project creates naturally flowing interaction spaces and varied outdoor spaces for an at-risk population of veterans, helping to promote a healthy lifestyle and communal activity. Further, it incorporates an innovative, publicly accessible herb garden at the street front, in addition to edible landscaping throughout the site.

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.

Well embark on a tour that will shed some light on one particular architect who is responsible for a considerable amount of the multi-family housing in the Los Angeles Metro Area during that time. Leland A. Bryant, a little-known local architect who did his work largely in obscurity, had an eye on the burgeoning entertainment industry and a grasp of the latest building technology. Join AIA Los Angeles on Sunday April 30, 2017 starting at 10am.

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

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 passengers, and then transitioning 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. 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.

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.

It is not a cultural amenity or individual preference, but critical to human function. There are over 100 studies pointing to the health benefits from human-nature connections. This short presentation will focus on emerging design trends in biophilia and the potential health benefits and economic savings it has to offer. We hope that it spurs creative and lively conversation around how your projects can benefit from biophilic design.

The impact of housing affordability is a critical challenge to local, regional, and Statewide economies, particularly as people from all income groups are increasingly frustrated with the lack of affordable options to rent or buy and instead opt to develop their careers in more affordable areas. The Summit will discuss solutions and strategies for decision-makers to build housing in their local communities and to say YES to housing.

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

Not only do guest rooms and sleeping rooms have a myriad 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.

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 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.

Design commissions for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County include CO Architects' expansion and re-imagination of the North Campus that includes a redesigned front façade with an entry bridge, pedestrian-friendly terraces and communal areas, and a two-level car park, and proposes a series of glass pavilions housing a live butterfly collection, museum shop and ticket office, museum café, and outdoor dining. A 3.5-acre landscape program provides gardens and outdoor learning environments. Modernization efforts began in 2006 with the renovation and seismic upgrade of the iconic 1913 Building – the first phase of an institution-wide metamorphosis (including the roll–out of major new exhibitions) leading up to the museum’s 2013 centennial.

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.

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.

17-Jul-201617-Jul-2016
aia
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.

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.

Bored with a design for a generic box of a house that came with the purchase of the lot, Tim gave Marbletecture a simple yet evocative sketch depicting his intent, which began an ongoing interaction that shaped his home. It occurred to them that the process was akin to fermentation.

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.
