Safe Trestles Competition Update

Back on February, we told you about the access to Trestles, one of North America’s most celebrated waves, and the threat due to safety and environmental concerns it’s going through. A coalition of concerned groups organized by the volunteer non-profit organization Architecture for Humanity, launched “Safe Trestles,” an open-to-all, two-stage design competition to create a safe pathway to serve surfers, the local coastal community and day visitors to San Onofre State Beach.

There are now 12 finalists (you can see all of them here), and the jury, with Bjarke Ingels, Cameron Sinclair (co-founder of Architecture for Humanity) and surfer Rusty Long among others, will announce the five finalists tomorrow via Lowers Pro web cast.

A bamboo structure designed by Bamboo DNA is featuring all the finalists in the beautiful beach of Lower Trestles in San Clemente, California. For more details on the competition click here. See more images after the break.
