The Center at Blessed Sacrament is a place dedicated to serving those underserved in the City of Los Angeles, in other words, homeless people. They help these individuals socially, through programs that help them develop into active citizens of the community. Thus making them feel more as a person rather than feel rejected by society.

Project Statement The goals that have encouraged for this project design are the daily gatherings and activities done within the site already. Do to the visitors that inhabitant the site, material and types of seating were taken into consideration for this project. As well as, the various necessities lacking within the site, such as ADA Ramps, a formal entry, gathering spaces, seating, shading, storage and landscaping. As a class, it was our goal to activate the space and have the inhibitors take ownership of the center, making them watchdogs of their site.

Firestone Light Rail Station is part of the TOD project for the new Orangeline that will soon connect Los Angeles to Santa Monica. The fundamentals for this studio was too cross learn the practices of our interdisciplinary team members, all for the purpose of creating a Rail Station. The first few weeks of interacting and working with Urban Planners and Engineers was challenging do to the various terms used in each discipline being so different from each other. Overall, the class was a success and very beneficial in communicating with different disciplines in learning from one another and how we completed a project together.

[Rooftop Community Sapce]

Project Statement The purpose behind this project is to create Public Transportation to transit poor communities that have very high activity of its use. These communities not only struggle with transportation but a lack of bike lanes, park accessibility, health problems, affordable housing and a great need for an economic boost. The design for the station and surrounding area was created to accommodate these conflicts and implement solutions into the site.

Green Machine is a programming project coordinated along with the office of Mia Lehrer + Associates. The emphasis of the project is to utilize LAUSD as a catalyst for green space. What if we could utilize 2,500 square feet on every LAUSD campus, using this square footage and applying sustainable principles, imagine the possibilities. Children that attend these campuses suffer from limited recreational activity and a lack of access to parks. For this reason, applying this program to LAUSD campuses not only will impact the students lifestyle and bring awareness but impact the overall system of the Los Angeles River. Project Statement As a team we aimed to create social awareness and environmental educationan. LAUSD is the biggest landowner in Los Angeles, creating change in the many institutions not only will be a benefiting factor for the students but communities as well. LASUD can be the catalyst for change, it is time Los Angeles residents to act now!
