As LA County works to find sustainable solutions to the humanitarian crisis of homelessness, the role of the Arts Commission has been to catalyze the community of architects, designers, planners, and creative strategists to reimagine the potential of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s) as a housing typology that works in conjunction with other strategies to help alleviate LA County’s housing pressure.

On April 27, 2018 the Arts Commission will honor the winners of the architectural design competition Part of the Solution: Yes to ADU. This competition stemmed from the Commission’s work in partnership with the Homeless Initiative, Department of Regional Planning, and the Community Development Commission on Strategy F4: Second Dwelling Unit Pilot Program.

With proposals submitted by architects throughout LA County, representing a range of backgrounds and experiences from students to established practitioners, the competition assembled a tangible index of possibilities that can help policy makers, architects, and home owners implement ADU’s in their communities.

A panel discussion on the topics of innovative solutions to building ADUs, present building codes, current designs as well as engineering and construction best practices. Facilitated by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design

While LA County confronts this shared humanitarian crisis and works to find a path forward, the Arts Commission, as a partner in the Homeless Initiative’s Second Dwelling Units Pilot Program, is helping to promote the development of ADUs by gathering ideas as a resource to generate solutions for affordable housing. As a part of this, the LA County Arts Commission put on the Yes to ADU Design Competition, which invited artists and architects interested in the role of ADUs as part of the solution to solve LA County's homless crisis to submit designs for their own ADU Solutions.
