Architects Rios Clementi Hale Studios transform Mini-Mall into a design laboratory.

The design firm has been stretching the definition of “architecture firm” for more than 20 years.  Already doing urban planning, architecture, landscape, interiors, product design, graphics, and branding, the Los Angeles firm—with its new move to larger space—is building on its talent as retailer/wholesaler by becoming landlord and developer of a 17,000-square-foot mixed-use center on the city’s active Larchmont Boulevard.

“The move to Larchmont means larger space for our design operations, and an opportunity to contribute to a diverse, lively part of Los Angeles,” says Mark Rios, FAIA, FASLA, partner and founder of Rios Clementi Hale Studios.  The firm, which has more than doubled its staff in the past three years, is working on several of LA’s “mega-projects”: Grand Avenue Civic Park, NBC Universal Studios, Century City Greening Plan, and Nokia Plaza at LA Live!  Other recent projects: The California Endowment, Westfield Century City Dining Terrace, Mark Taper Forum renovation, Austin City Limits, Woodbury University Studio Building, and many private residences.

Thursday, 15 November 2007 01:43

Earthship Biotecture  has been developing a sustainable housing method called  the  Earthship Concept  for over thirty years in New Mexico.  

This housing  is independant of municipal utilities and presents ...

1.)  Solar /thermal heating and cooling
2.)  Solar/wind electricity
3.)  Water harvesting
4.)  Contained, zero discharge, individual on site sewage treatment
5.)  Building with recycled materials
6.)  Food production in the home

Earthships directly address the global issues of our time. These issues have become more serious in the recent months due to a heightened awareness of global warming. The Earthship concept is directed at curbing global warming and at the very least offering a direction that will sustain human life on earth longer as planetary conditions worsen.
