Redesign a Part of Los Angeles City Property
Known more as a sprawl than city, Los Angeles has launched a contest to develop several square miles of property.
The ‘Los Angeles Cleantech Corridor and Green District Competition’ was initiated on 9 August by the Southern California Institute of Architecture and The Architect’s Newspaper, and will open up the eastern edge of downtown LA for the competition.
The competition asks architects, designers, engineers and students to create an “innovative urban vision” for the city’s Cleantech Corridor.
The Cleantech Corridor is a 2,000 acre lot reserved for the creation of clean technology products and inventive solutions to climate change.
But for this competition, entrants should move beyond industrial uses to create an “integrated economic, residential, clean energy, and cultural engine for the city”, according to a statement by the competition’s organizers.
For the professional category, the top prize is a cool US$5,000, while students stand a chance to win US$2,000.
Entries are due 30 September, and more information can be found on the competition website here.
