The AIA | Los Angeles is an outreach partner of Divining LA, now competing in the LA2050 challenge. Divining LA is a collaborative, multi-year initiative designed to seek, reveal, and champion a water-smart future for Los Angeles. We urge our members and followers to support Divining LA with a simple click: Vote here.
Divining LA is a digital decision-making tool and a public design challenge led by the Arid Lands Institute at Woodbury University in partnership with AIA|LA, Arup, TreePeoope, City of LA Bureau of Engineering, LADWP and LA County. Working with AC Martin, Perkins + Will, agps architecture and the design schools, Divining LA will bring together architects, urban designers, citizens, scientists, and policy advisors to test the tool and envision an abundant future in drylands. Our vision for 2050 is a city that plans, zones, designs, and builds for local water harvest.
In the next 12 months, Divining LA will achieve major milestones: developing the design brief and support materials for design teams; inviting university and professional collaborators to join the challenge; identifying community-based organizations to represent their neighborhoods in the challenge; and launching the first phase of design.
