LOS ANGELES COUNTY – RFP – Part of the Solution: Yes to ADU

In RFP on November 29, 2017 at 12:23 am

The homeless population in Los Angeles County has increased at an alarming rate over the last five years. According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), steadily rising housing costs and stagnant incomes are the underlying cause, with the highest economic stress falling on renters. In 2016, in response to this humanitarian crisis, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors launched the Homeless Initiative, a comprehensive plan that includes strategies to increase affordable housing through the development of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s.) Towards that goal, LA County is updating its ADU ordinance to address new opportunities for secondary units in single family lots for family use or rental.

As partners in the Homeless Initiative’s Second Dwelling Units Pilot Program, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission Civic Art Program, in collaboration with the Department of Regional Planning, the Community Development Corporation, and Chief Executive Office, is helping to promote the development of ADU’s. The creative community is invited to participate in this design competition to reimagine freestanding ADU’s in Los Angeles County. Part of the Solution: YES to ADU  encourages architects and designers to serve as creative strategists in service to the Homeless Initiative, promoting affordable housing with inspiring, tangible examples of freestanding ADU’s that the public can visualize in their yards and neighborhoods. Winning entries will be announced at an awards event and exhibition in March 2018.

ELIGIBILITY: The design competition is open to individuals or teams comprised of architects, engineers, designers, artists, and/or students enrolled in related programs. Whether participating as an individual or a team, at least one key member must reside, work, study, or teach in Los Angeles County. The competition is free of charge.

BUDGET: A First Prize will be awarded at $12,000. Two Second Prizes will be awarded at $6,000 each.

DEADLINE: January 5, 2018
