Urban Design Review Session 7.11.23

July 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-8

The 2023 AIA|LA and LACP Urban Design Review Sessions

Architects & designers passionate about improving the design quality of newly proposed projects throughout the City of Los Angeles are encouraged to participate in the AIA|LA & Los Angeles City Planning (LACP) Professional Volunteer Program (PVP).


In 2023, we will be coordinating twenty-four urban design review sessions, which will serve as opportunities for leading design talent to help the Los Angles City Planning’s Urban Design Studio critically review upcoming projects throughout the City.  

TO PREPARE:  The following resources are helpful to review in advance to become more familiar with the Urban Design Studio’s three design approaches. 

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.

All of the sessions are held virtually on zoom.  PLEASE REGISTER HERE.

The design review sessions are held virtually on zoom on the first, second, and third Tuesday of each month (10am – 12pm)  = see exact dates below.

Please note:   We’re involving a rotating pool of architect volunteers, with sensitivity to the value of your time – so therefore, you are encouraged to RSVP and attend at most only two or three sessions during any given calendar year.  This will ensure more space to accommodate as many volunteers as possible since each session accommodates a limited capacity.


PVP discussions provide an opportunity for an open discussion with the notion that the information is to remain confidential and not shared in any other public or private forums. Anonymity shall be maintained by all PVP participants at all times.
