Gallery: LA’s 40th Annual Architecture Awards Celebrate Sustainable Des...

 

Olympic Police Station by Greun Associates The LEED silver Olympic Police Station certified project explores the concept of "protection" by virtually extending the station's presence into the surrounding context. The plaza functions as an urban connective tissue, naturally channeling visitors into the entry lobby and engaging the intersection of Vermont and 11th Streets with the public entrance. Public meeting rooms and lobby spaces are carefully planned to further utilize the plaza as an extension of the surrounding community event spaces.

The honorable Anthony Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, was on hand at the awards, noting that as a major metropolitan city, Los Angeles contains more LEED certified buildings than other similarly sized cities in the US. While it is hard to say where he’s getting his information, the LABC’s awards are testament to the wide variety of sustainable buildings that are popping-up around the city. Hopefully this is a trend that only continues to increase over time.
