An exhibition of winning projects in the Los Angeles Cleantech Corridor & Green District Competition organized by SCI-Arc and the Architect’s Newspaper will be on display at SCI-Arc, October 9-27.
The projects on display set the stage for an open ideas forum for provocative, even revolutionary, new visions of LA’s urban fabric and infrastructure.
The Cleantech Corridor & Green District competition asked architects, landscape architects, designers, engineers, urban planners, students and environmental professionals to create an innovative urban vision for Los Angeles' Cleantech Corridor, a several-mile-long development zone on the eastern edge of downtown LA. It asked entrants to move beyond industrial uses—creating an integrated economic, residential, clean energy, and cultural engine for the city through architectural and urban strategies.
The competition, which offered more than $11,000 in prize money, was presented in collaboration with the Office of the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA/LA), which established the Cleantech Corridor.
Sponsors include the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles; City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; Quercus Trust; and Latham & Watkins LLP. Competition partners include the Mayor of the City of Los Angeles’ Office of Economic and Business Policy; Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority; Clean Tech LA; and U.S. Green Building Council, Los Angeles Chapter. This project was made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.
