The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and The Architect’s Newspaper are today launching the Los Angeles Clean Tech Corridor and Green District Competition. The competition asks architects, landscape architects, designers, engineers, urban planners, students and environmental professionals to create an innovative urban vision for Los Angeles' CleanTech Corridor, a several-mile-long development zone on the eastern edge of downtown LA.
The competition, which offers more than $11,000 in prize money, is presented with the Office of the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles, which established the Clean Tech Corridor. It asks entrants to move beyond industrial uses; creating an integrated economic, residential, clean energy, and cultural engine for the city through architectural and urban strategies. Crucially, this competition will provide an open ideas forum for provocative, even revolutionary, new visions of LA’s urban fabric and infrastructure.
Professional and student competitors are also asked to consider the work already completed by the Urban Land Institute’s Advisory Service Panel (ULI) on the Los Angeles Cleantech Corridor that is sponsored by the CRA/LA and the DWP.
The jury includes Los Angeles architect Michael Maltzan; Ming Fung, Graduate Director, SCI-Arc; Principal, Hodgetts+Fung Design and Architecture, Romel Pascual, City of Los Angeles Deputy Mayor for Energy and Environment; Calvin Hollis, Chief Operating Officer, Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles; and Nikolas Patsaouras, past President of the Board of the Los Angeles Water and Power Commissioners and former board member of the MTA
Entries are due on September 30, 2010
