A NEW INFRASTRUCTURE:
Innovative Transit Solutions for Los Angeles
An Open Ideas Competition
Sponsored by SCIFI at SCI-Arc and The Architect’s Newspaper
Entries Due March 13, 2009 at 5pm; Winners Announced March 21 at SCI-Arc.
The passage in November 2008 of Measure R, a half cent sales tax in Los Angeles County, will provide as much as $40 billion for transit-related projects across the City of Los Angeles over the next 30 years. Meanwhile, U.S. President Barack Obama has pledged to make the largest investment since the 1950s to rebuild our nation’s crumbling infrastructure.
In response to this historic opportunity, the SCIFI (Southern California Institute of Future Initiatives) program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and The Architect’s Newspaper are sponsoring an open ideas competition for architects, engineers, urban planners and students to propose new ideas for LA County’s transit infrastructure.
