AIA|LA & LAUSD: Working Together to Build Better Communities

Make your voice heard with LAUSD and the Los Angeles Department of City Planning by becoming involved in one of two pilot programs launching right now.

AIA|LA is currently building a task-force of local architects and urban designers who will provide critical insight and feedback to public agencies through one of two pilot programs launching in August 2010. The goal of both of these programs is to give architects the opportunity to serve their community and help shape the dialogue around such issues as: contracting reform; the selection process; masterplanning initiatives; design competitions; project delivery methods; peer-review & design review sessions.

These volunteer programs are in partnership with LAUSD and the Los Angeles City Planning Commission. Participants will be asked to attend a meeting and engage in discussions aimed to achieve higher standards in city planning.
