Within the past five years many important parks have been designed for a wide variety of areas within the Los Angeles Basin. Yet there has been little discussion about these parks: what they look like, how they function, and how they relate to contemporary Los Angeles. This exhibition will survey six major parks that are currently being designed, that are in construction, or have been completed recently. The hope of this exhibition and symposium is to open up a dialogue among the Los Angeles design community and discuss the work critically.
AECOM has opened the Urban SOS: Transformations competition, offering US $20,000 in prize money for integrated design responses to sites in select global cities. The competition is open to students in the fields of architecture, urban and regional planning, urban design, landscape architecture, economics, environmental science, engineering, and related disciplines.
The submission period is open until July 31, 2010. Semi-finalists will be announced September 15, and the winner(s) will be announced November 5. Visit www.aecom.com/urbansos for complete submission requirements.
