St. Jerome Parish Hall Achieves LEED Silver Certification 

International design firm Cuningham Group Architecture, P.A. (Cuningham Group) announces that the St. Jerome Parish Hall remodeling project has achieved LEED® Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The St. Jerome Parish Hall project is the first project with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to become LEED® certified. It was certified Silver per the USBGC “New Construction and Major Renovation” Category, Version 2.2.

Following the Church’s teachings that the environment is God’s gift to everyone, the Parish made a commitment to create a “green” hall within the remodeling project. Sustainable goals were in place from the outset as Cuningham Group, Stonemark Construction Management and the client collaborated on making sustainability a visible priority in the design. Features include innovative mechanical system controls; new skylights to boost and equalize ambient lighting in the gym; water-conserving restroom fixtures; new glazing; new lighting and lighting control systems; reused or selected materials with significant recycledcontent; and better metering of electrical power.

Cuban Modernism Lecture at MOLAA, August 22

The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is proud to present a series of architecture and design lectures. Experts in these fields will speak about the various architectural and design styles present in Latin America, particularly Cuba, while providing a historical context for the different style movements which have influenced that country’s architecture. The next lecture will be about Cuban Modernism on August 22, presented by Rosa Lowinger, a recognized international expert in the conservation of built heritage.

Spare, geometric, and light as air, Cuban architecture of the 1940s and 1950s arose directly out of the international modernist style. By looking at buildings such as Max Borges’ Tropicana Cabaret as well as examples of domestic architecture, we will see how Cuba’s use of the international style was directly related to its political and social milieu at the time.

Air Force Base gets Solar Power Installation

 Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona is set to get a 15 megawatt solar power installation that will create 550 new green jobs during construction, which will take about a year.  It’s also going to take a huge bite out of the base’s carbon footprint, supplying almost half of the base’s peak electrical demand.  Luke currently spends more than $5 million per year on electricity and uses more than 60 million kilowatt hours annually in mission support.

New Estadio Chivas by Jean Marie Massaud and Daniel Pouzet

The new Estadio Chivas by French architects Jean Marie Massaud and Daniel Pouzet of Studio Massaud
officially opened late last month. Located in Guadalajara, Mexico, the stadium was designed
to resemble that of an erupting volcano. Consisting of 45,000 seats the structure is enveloped with sloping parkland that rises up to the stadium's upper reaches. When games are not being played the slopes become a public park.

Keeping with the theme of an erupting volcano, the stadium's white membrane is intended
to look like a cloud hovering above the volcano. Rather than creating a parking lot around the exterior of the stadium the architects chose to incorporate the 8500 parking spaces underneath the sloping sides of the volcano.
