Deadline Set for 3rd 'Real Problem' Design Contest

September 13, 1987

Sept. 30 is the registration deadline for the third annual "Real Problem" design competition sponsored by the associates of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

The competition--open to all students of architecture and non-licensed architectural professionals--will deal with the impact of the Alvarado/Wilshire Metro Rail station, scheduled to open in 1992.

Presentation drawings and a written statement must be submitted by Jan. 8 and judging will be held in March. Winners will receive prizes totaling $1,000.

The planned underground station at Alvarado Street and Wilshire Boulevard is across the street from MacArthur Park, in an area with economic blight and a growing transient population, according to LA/AIA associates president Allan York.

Individuals and teams can register at the chapter office, in the Pacific Design Center, 8687 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood. The entry fee is $15 per project.
