Design 9 Students Travel to Los Angeles for Mixed-Use Housing Research

Twenty-five fifth-year students traveled with Professors Jeffrey Huber and Andrew Hayes to Los Angeles to research mixed-use housing and transit-oriented development as part of their Advanced Architectural Design 1 coursework. Students spent five days studying various projects and visiting the architecture offices of Koning Eizenberg, Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects, and Morphosis Architects. They also visited the Southern California Institute of Architecture (Sci-Arc) and the University of Southern California School of Architecture. This research provides the foundation for their design studio projects, which focus on creating transit-oriented development concepts for downtown Fort Lauderdale.
