AISC Steel Competition 2008

Description

A mixed use high rise building for Downtown Los Angeles. ‘Knuckled Lattice’ combines the strength and grace of steel construction with heavy ridged concrete construction. Through out the building there are 4 story tall outdoor gardens opening up the 66 story atrium that allows for cross ventilation and unprecedented access to sunlight in every unit. As well as a large roof top park, solely for the use of the residence living within the block. Creating much desired green space in downtown Los Angeles.
