LATTC ENCOUNTERS Press Release 2011 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 400 W. Washington Blvd. Los Angeles California 90015 Office Building “B” 125 Studio Building “D” 330 Contact Marcela Oliva, Architecture Professor Green Workforce Division, CDM Construction Design Manufacturing Department, Architecture and Environmental Design Discipline st June 1 , 2011 PRESS RELEASE You are cordially invited to the LATTC Architecture and Environmental Design Discipline E.N.C.O.U.N.T.E.R. on June 13, 2011 from 1:00 to 6:00. The Green Workforce Division, Construction Design and Manufacturing Department and Architecture Environmental Design Discipline offer a unique and innovative program in Architecture Technology. The E.N.C.O.U.N.T.E.R.S is a new type of physical and virtual get together among advisors, alumni, end of the year slide shows and social network environment. We are excited to confirm that Sustainable Designers, Architects, Leading Agencies, Universities and others already confirmed their participation. We see architecture as a social mechanism that stimulates both the sensory system and the desire to create by means of spatial languages and computer technologies. Our courses use nature templates to facilitate the design of objects and places, life cycle strategies to document architecture drawings, federal enterprise to align standards and LEED methods to use materials and methods of construction. We also recognize the untapped talent in our communities and their visual intelligence capacity. We provide them with nurturing environments where learning happens in the context of doing. We are aware of the importance of the built environment and its place in society. A revolution in architecture and environmental design has taken place. New tools such as GIS, CAD, Rapid Prototype, BIM and 3D Modeling facilitate an unprecedented analytical and comprehensive means of looking at human-made ecosystems. With these new lenses, we are able to see patterns and relationships we could not see before. These new tools hold the promise to help us sustain ourselves on the planet. While some of these tools have been used successfully in design and construction for many years, they now support a broad range of additional applications, such as First Response, National Intelligence, operations Planning, Emergency Many exciting projects and recognitions are happening in our program, college and district. In the next two years we will move to the new Gold LEED building across the street. This new space will be very dynamic and flexible. During the E.N.C.O.U.N.T.E.R. S. we will exhibit new CAD tools like REVIT Sustainable and display designs for Green House Prototypes and Cargo Container Multifamily Houses. You will also see projects like “When Science Meets Architecture,” SAVE LA Projects”, Sustainable Landscape CAD Matrix for Operation and Maintenance, Green Idea House Landscape Designs, as well as studies of existing LEED projects under Construction in BIM Revit, LACCD e7 Internship program and others. Each student will have his or her own booth to display their work. It will be a one to one relationship and network opportunity for all.
