Seeks to establish the ACLA as a trusted and accessible resource for communities in LA for all matters of architecture. Partners with neighborhoods and communities on events that can promote the value of design, address community needs, and introduce careers in architecture to students throughout the city.
Our Community Engagement Committee works with neighborhood partners to craft initiatives such as walking tours and neighborhood council partnerships with a particular focus on West Adams, our new home. Through Community Tent Events, ACLA improves the lives of residents by fostering community-centered design, bringing architects directly to the community under pop-up tents at community events such as Farmer’s Markets throughout Los Angeles, CicLAvia, and public neighborhood festivals. These tent events also feature activities for K-12 children and their parents.
