AIA: Urban Agriculture and Open Space in South L.A.

Urban Agriculture and Open Space in South LA
September 22nd @ Osborn Architects

Come Join the Discussion-
This year, the AIA|LA Emerging Urban Designers Forum is focusing on open space in Los Angeles in a brainstorming and discussion format. Participants are encouraged to bring their ideas and expertise to the conversation.

Osborn Architects is hosting this month’s forum on urban agriculture in South Los Angeles. The forum will explore how urban agriculture and access to healthy food can help shape open space in South Los Angeles and how ideas about open space can shape urban agriculture, especially in light of the City Council's 2008 moratorium on new fast food restaurants throughout a 32-square-mile area of South LA.

An introduction by Michael Pinto of Osborn Architects will open the discussion. We will look at three South LA sites and address questions such as:

What are the possible synergies between open space and urban agriculture in Los Angeles and how can the city better support a local food economy? How can urban agriculture be integrated into South LA communities? Which types of locations lend themselves to urban agriculture? Where will urban agriculture have the greatest impact on providing healthy and local food sources? Can the infrastructure of urban agriculture generate a vision for healthier life styles and urban open space in South LA?
