Between The Lines: How the 2028 Olympics & Paralympics can be a catalyst for bringing programmable public spaces to LA Metro corridors.
Los Angeles is a privatized city that has historically lacked public open space, ranking 66th in the country. Within its 4,751 square miles sprawl, there are too few places for people to congregate and recreate, especially along light rail and bus rapid transit lines, which offer a new way to experience the city.
As the region works to increase our mobility in time for the 2028 Olympic & Paralympic Games, millions of people will be successfully traversing 10 – 40 miles stretches without a car — all the way from Westwood to Downtown, Long Beach to Montclair, Santa Monica to Hollywood.

Succulent Walls tackle how architecture can respond to Southern California’s precarious relationship to water and lack of disaster preparedness. The work of a Master of Architecture (M.Arch.I) Research Studio taught by Heather Roberge, this collaboration between Mary and David Martin's MADWORKSHOP and UCLA Architecture and Urban Design prototypes a series of residential water catchment systems. By integrating a system for easily installed water storage and food production into the residential vernacular, the class of eleven graduate students hopes to transform our laissez-faire attitude towards this critical and finite resource into one of proactive self-sufficiency. Five group projects were distilled
The Martin Architecture and Design Workshop (MADWORKSHOP) supports students, makers, artists, and architects in the realization of socially valuable design projects.

Merging a contemporary aesthetic agenda, ambitious fabrication techniques, and the mentorship of MADWORKSHOP’s experienced Board of Directors, the foundation offers emerging designers the opportunity to take their ideas from concept to reality.
The 2°C Symposium is an opportunity to learn essential technologies, strategies and tools that address climate change at a critical time for our collective future.

Join Rios Clementi Hale Studios and Cal Poly Tech for an investigation of virtual reality in architecture on Sunday, December 9 at the Rios Clementi Hale Studios offices.
A jury will judge final presentations from architecture students taught by Frank Clementi and other RCHS team members. The virtual reality projects all aim to evaluate the essential conventions of architectural spaces and adapt them to the reduced conditions of simulated environments. Attendees are invited to experience the students' plans firsthand followed by a roundtable discussion investigating the evolution of architecture and how it behaves.
This event is open to the public.
