YES to ADU: Awards Event and Exhibition

Ticket Information
Tickets are free, but an RSVP is required.

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.
