ad_hocitectureThe LAADC is a response to limited geographic growth and an acknowledgement of the richness and distinctive character of existing Los Angeles communities. The Collective is located in the Arts District of Los Angeles which is a diverse and changing neighborhood adjacent to the downtown area.
The Collective offers a common neutral ground for all people. Each member of the community has equal right and equal impact on how the Collective is shaped formally and programmatically.
Los Angeles Arts District Community Collective
collective designCollective Architecture embraces the relationship between a community of people and the architect. The LAADC allows for the community members to work closely with an architect to coordinate their design ideas. This ad hoc architectural system can be added to and adjusted for the communities needs with the support of the architect.
collected communitiesThe community center is a modular system where a conglomeration of units make up the whole. Units can be added into or taken away from the assembly. The unit type is determined by the program to be housed inside it and the preferences of the people. The architect has the opportunity to support the community growth by providing services to them, long after the initial phase of construction is completed.
collected communitiesLos Angeles is a diverse city that is perpetually changing. It is made up of a rich collection of unique communities that are themselves changing. Denser development responds to the changing needs of communities; historically Los Angeles has developed through suburban sprawl. At present, Los Angeles has reached its limit of sprawl and must now be developed through densification of its existing regions. The city is infilling and growing vertically to meet the increasing needs of its residents.

formThe general form of the collective is a result of units plugging onto a steel structural system. The additive nature of the LAADC does not need a master plan, but rather it embraces the ad hoc nature of evolving communities with the support of the architect.

programThe program of the LAADC responds to the surrounding community needs; business center, housing, gardening, art, exercise, education, entertainment etc the LAADC can adapt to host the desired program. For example, if the community has an influx of artists, the community center can respond to this change by plugging units onto the galleries or studio space.

limitlessThe LAADC pushes the limitations of the property line and existing buildings. This blurs the relationship between the growth of the community and the consequential growth of the LAADC. It also breaks the distinction between the community and the community center and shows that they are in fact part of the same thing; a larger whole.

los angeles: retoldThe tectonic assembly of the LAADC is dynamic and will change over time in response to the changing needs of the community. The structural system serves as a receptor for the modular panelized units of program. The structure is primarily steel and can be assembled, added to, changed, and subtracted from as needed.

los angeles: reclaimedThe structure and units are made from reclaimed and recycled materials. Like the program-matic cycle between community center and community, there is a cycle to the material assembly.
los angeles reconnectedSteel allows for flexible growth, as it is the strong core of this modular building system. Recycled materials will be selected, customized and modified to the desired shape and size, and then assembled on site.

bundlesliving: a mix of condos and rental units flow along the east side of the site between the train station and railroad tracks. elevated for privacy the residential zones provide views over the activity of the districts plazas.culture: a theatre floats over the main plaza, inviting visitors up through 2 levels of art galleries and to an elevated pathway that leads back to a multiplex cinema.social: cafes, plazas, and shopping provide indoor and outdoor space for friends and family to gather or walk along pathways. whether people come to the meld for a saturday morning farmers market or for happy hour after work, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
the three bundles of network flow through the site as an extension of existing urban life in downtown denver. indoor and outdoor spaces are distinct but visually connected to reveal activity between activities.
