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?...

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....
On June 24th, AIA|LA is coordinating a series of candid discussions about how to design transportation systems that will support and strengthen healthier, more functional and more livable neighborhoods.

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....

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.

aia
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.

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.

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

Hotels, motels, inns, and restaurants as well as student housing are one of the more involved building types. 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.

Brunn’s design aesthetic is evident in his utilization of provocative spatial choreography and harmonious connections between light and volume.

The panelists discuss next steps for transforming Downtown Los Angeles into one of the world's best places to live -- and a 21st-century urban destination. Downtown Los Angeles (a.k.a. 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.

The collaborative work between the architecture of Johnston Marklee and the world of contemporary art has been the subject of the publication Later Layer and of the forthcoming book House is a House is a House is a House is a House. A monograph on the work of Johnston Marklee was published in the spring of 2014. The firm received the Emerging Practice Award by the Los Angeles Chapter of the A.I.A. in 2013 and was nominated for the Mies Prize in 2014. Johnston Marklee’s design for the Menil Drawing Institute, in Houston, Texas, will commence construction in March 2015.

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 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.

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.
