WHAT:
In 2016, we will be coordinating twenty-three urban design review sessions, which will serve as opportunities for leading design talent to help the Los Angles Department of City Planning's Urban Design Studio critically review upcoming projects throughout the City.

WHY:
The review sessions will will enable a rotating pool of architects and designers the opportunity to provide insightful and critical design feedback on pending projects that will be reviewed by the Planning Commission. As a volunteer, you will help educate planning staff on urban design issues and complex urban typologies and you will have the chance to provide project specific urban design advice for planning staff’s consideration.

WHEN:
The 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month (10am - 12pm) = see exact dates below.
