UCLA Extension LA Program Charettes, Alumni Invited

March 5, 2013 in Events by admin

The UCLA Extension Landscape Architecture Program has been invited to enter the Santa Monica Spring Jubilee Vignette Competition!

The theme is “Urban Tea Garden” and the challenge is to “translate the idea of an English Garden for the more arid Southern California landscape.” The top six designs will get a $300 stipend to build their design in a 10’ x 12’ freestanding cube to be displayed on the Third Street Promenade from May 4-5.

Because the space is so small, the design process should be a quick one. The LA Program is hoping to get it done in two charettes.  The first one is this Sunday, March 10, from 10am to noon.  The second one is next Sunday, March 17, also from 10am to noon.  Both days, the charette will be held in Room 314 at 1010 Westwood Center.

Students, faculty and alums who can make it are asked to please come by and help out.  This should be a lot of fun and a great learning experience as well.   Remember, this Saturday is Daylight Savings so plan accordingly!

If you have any questions, contact Stacie Preven at 310-428-8165 or stacie.preven@gmail.com.
