Gallery: LABC Celebrates the Best of Los Angeles Architecture!

 
The project shown in the lead is designed by Gruen Associates, this 175,000 square foot facility is headed for LEED Silver. The Los Angeles County Fire District Headquarters enables the department to consolidate district offices into one efficient working machine to fight off all the fires that uncontrollably pop-up throughout Los Angeles county annually.

It’s no secret that we are currently living in though economic times, but the building industry seems to being facing greater challenges as investment and development of government and private infrastructure seems to wane with little recover. These awards by the LABC are testament to a city that is still finding a way to thrive in hard times, and their sustainable aspects goes to show that building green isn’t necessarily more expensive.
