INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Lake Tahoe’s proposed regional plan could be in the hands of environmental consultant EDAW by next week, according to Tahoe Regional Planning Agency officials.
Now EDAW will review those options in addition to a project description and the proposed code changes needed to support the environmental policies that will eventually go to the TRPA Governing Board for approval.
The International Design Competition for Newark Visitors Center is being held by AIA Newark, Suburban Emerging Professionals and the Young Architects Forum.
Competitors are asked to address the site on a variety of issues. Designers are asked to develop a strategy for receiving patrons and educating, entertaining, and directing them. Proposals should link the diverse historic and urban opportunities located within the area. Address the historical, present day, and future value of this new structure in Newark.
The most idealistic of advocates envision cities and towns that burst with food, be it from skyscraper roofs, apartment balconies, back alleys or repurposed plastic tubs. In this world, people plan their meals around what’s in season, relegating supermarket trips to coffee, wheat and other staples they can’t get within the region.
