Adaptive Reuse 2.0

October 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT


Adaptive Reuse 2.0

In collaboration with Los Angeles City Planning’s Urban Design Studio, we are organizing an Adaptive Reuse 2.0 roundtable to rethink specific zoning code and building code requirements in an effort to promote recovery, health and wellness, and resilience.  Given the potential for a change in demand for office space, and with the Health Element of the General Plan in mind, let’s see how we can expand the City’s adaptive re-use provisions to more areas of Los Angeles.

· Allowing hybrid uses
· Open, adaptive buildings and spaces
· Adapting parking for other uses
· Environmental benefits of adaptive reuse: conservation of resources and energy upgrades
· Update of Adaptive Reuse ordinance, moving the age of buildings forward
· Exploring a mix of uses in current office space

The desired outcome is for AIA LA and  members of the City of LA family to identify a set of recommendations, as well as, identify an effective pathway forward to expand the Adaptive Re.use ordinance citywide.

This roundtable will take place virtually on October 21st, from 2-4pm. If you’re interested in joining, please email me at will@aialosangeles.org for more details.
