Moment Factory was commissioned by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) to work in collaboration with Marcela Sardi of Sardi Design and Mike Rubin of MRA International as the executive multimedia content producer for seven iconic media features at the New Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The result is the largest immersive multimedia system of any airport in the Americas. Our team created four hours of original video content, as well as multiple interactive capsules, using the latest in high-resolution imaging, 3D effects and even technologies that react directly to people’s movements and real-time airport information. Although the terminal was unveiled today, it will open to the public only late August or early September.

McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., one of the nation’s premier healthcare builders, has begun construction of the new 74,000-square-foot Heart and Vascular Center at Grossmont Hospital, located at 5555 Grossmont Center Drive in La Mesa, Calif.

McCarthy was retained by the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), with CEO Barry Jantz and the publicly elected GHD board members providing oversight. Sharp HealthCare is the operator of Grossmont Hospital through a 30-year lease that was executed with the District in 1991.

Proposition G, a $247 million bond measure approved by voters of the East County region in June 2006, is funding the project, budgeted at $26,325,383 in construction costs. As proposed in the hospital’s Facilities Master Site Plan, Prop. G is funding several other infrastructure construction improvements at the publicly owned hospital, which opened in 1955.

A popular location for post- war, coastal, vacation homes, South Laguna still retains the many of the intimately scaled beach cottages from this era, along with leafy streets without sidewalks and streetlights. An 850 s.f. redwood, beach cottage built in 1948 stood on the site under a dense grove of eucalyptus trees when the current owners acquired the property.

Yin Yang House in Venice, California by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

This nearly net-zero energy live/work home and office was designed to function not only as a home and commercial office for both parents, but also as a private home for a large and growing family with several children. We sought to create a calm, relaxed and organized environment that emphasizes public space and changes the stereotype of a live/work home for a large family with young kids. Part private home and part business, the house is meant to serve as a place to entertain and a welcoming space for clients and teenagers.
