AIA|LA Wants You to Help Mobilize the City Center
GRAPHISOFT is a supporting sponsor of this year’s AIA|LA Mobile Center for Architecture and Design Student Competition!
In response to Los Angeles’ challenging geography, lack of a “traditional” city center and possession of many “centers”, AIA|LA has decided to investigate the possibility to create a “mobile” center that will travel to the many cities and neighborhoods that comprise our city “sprawl” as an architectural outreach to LA’s communities.
“In a metropolis such as ours, comprised of many unique communities, neighborhoods, and public meeting spots, we believe it’s important to bring the AIA|LA and the work of our members directly to Angelenos where they live and experience the city,” noted AIA|LA Executive Director Carlo Caccavale, Hon. AIA|LA. “One of the many important reasons we’ve conceived a mobile center is: it’s a means to directly reach elementary, middle and high school students who aren’t exposed to architecture.”
California architecture and design school students are invited to submit concepts for a Mobile Center for Architecture and Design. The Mobile Center will be a multi-faceted project that serves a highly adaptive and flexible program of office, exhibition/gallery space, classroom, creative hub, gathering point, etc. Qualified entries will receive financial prizes and have their design exhibited in conjunction with the 2018 annual 2×8 student exhibition.
Registration has been extended to February 23rd so don’t wait and register today!
