Located at the intersection of Olympic and the 110, right across from the Staples Center and LA Live, the project would comprise three narrow high-rise residential towers as well as spaces for shopping and dining. In total, the project is expected to include more than 1,000 residential units and 115,000 square feet of open space.</p><p>"The collaboration between SOM and P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S for the Olympia project has stretched the team to explore uncommon ideas in search of common ground,&rdquo; says Paul Danna, FAIA, design director, SOM. &ldquo;I believe the results will be architecture that is livable, intelligent, and embodies the spirit of Los Angeles."</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/pc/pcks21wkaftlqvfa.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/pe/pe9z1i6fq0zyfgj4.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/hn/hn5vucmaief12xyw.jpg"></p><p><a href="https://sciarc.edu/news/2017/som-and-p-a-t-t-e-r-n-s-propose-transformational-addition-to-the-los-angeles-skyline/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">via SCI-Arc</a></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/149990809/get-lectured-usc-spring-17 Get Lectured: USC, Spring '17 Justine Testado 2017-02-07T13:57:00-05:00 >2017-02-09T20:52:06-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/3p/3p2ayqnnhj9nsfjg.jpg" width="650" height="867" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/871644/2017-lectures" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Archinect's Architecture School Lecture Guide for Winter &amp; Spring 2017</strong></a></p><p>Archinect's&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/336082/get-lectured" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Get Lectured</em></a>&nbsp;is back in session for Winter and Spring 2017.&nbsp;<em>Get Lectured</em>&nbsp;is an ongoing series where we feature a school's lecture series&mdash;and their snazzy posters&mdash;for the current term.

Intended to ease the city&rsquo;s notorious traffic, it&rsquo;s not clear where Musk intends to dig, besides that it will start near his Hawthorne office, about 5 minutes from LAX.&nbsp;</p><p>Musk&rsquo;s been railing against the city&rsquo;s traffic for months, and it seems he&rsquo;s actually taking action. Apparently, he&rsquo;s considered the city&rsquo;s seismic instability in the planning process. &ldquo;Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging,&rdquo; he said on Twitter.</p><p>For the most part the news, which came from his Twitter, has been met with incredulity. The office of city planning said they were unaware of the plans, but the tech mogul said the boring would start in about a month.</p><p>The name for the new company that will be in charge of the project, should it actualize, is &ldquo;the Boring Company.&rdquo; &ldquo;Boring, it&rsquo;s what we do,&rdquo; said Musk.&nbsp;</p>... http://archinect.com/news/article/149988781/michael-maltzan-s-renderings-of-the-expanded-hammer-museum-reveal-cautious-yet-possibly-ebullient-design Michael Maltzan's renderings of the expanded Hammer Museum reveal cautious, yet possibly ebullient design Julia Ingalls 2017-01-26T14:42:00-05:00 >2017-01-27T14:53:05-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/jr/jrea04btmjk9du8l.jpg" width="650" height="371" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>After transforming from a cramped adjunct space to a fully fledged L.A. cultural hotspot in just a few decades, the Hammer Museum is expanding again thanks to Michael Maltzan, who has been gradually increasing and renovating the Hammer over the years via The Billy Wilder Theatre, the expanded public courtyard (featuring Heatherwick Studio's ever delightful spool chairs), and the John V. Tunney Bridge. Based on his past work for the museum, he's able to create aesthetically powerful spaces in fairly constrained circumstances. The new renderings, while not mind-blowing in of themselves, promise a continuance of his detailed, culturally attuned work.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/nh/nh2qn2n650c2dqjt.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/kk/kkkltmqoln8ejyow.jpg"></p><p>Perhaps the most exciting element of the new design is the pronounced pedestrian entrance on Wilshire Boulevard.
