Grimshaw reveals plans for “vertical” production campus in Los Angeles

"...A 15-acre industrial site not too far from the 6th Street Viaduct on the eastern fringes of Downtown Los Angeles is set to be transformed into a Grimshaw-designed “vertical campus” operated by independent production company East End Studios..."


Cement formed with biogenic limestone promises carbon-neutral concrete

"...Playing an indispensable role in global construction, cement contributes around seven percent of annual greenhouse gas emissions owing to its carbon-intensive production process. Scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder claim to have uncovered a greener path forward by tapping into a species of cloudy microalgae, which naturally produce limestone particles through photosynthesis and could turn buildings into carbon sinks as a result. Limestone is a key ingredient in cement, but adding it to the mix is incredibly energy intensive..."


Langford eyed for facility to make green building alternative to concrete

"...The durable panels are fire, earthquake and water resistant, so “it’s going to be extremely resilient in terms of natural disasters,” Simpson said..."


Food security and local production were growing concerns at city held public hearing

"...“The OCP identifies or introduces background and framework for local food systems. This considers local ocean resources and identifies local foods that may be growing. It also speaks to facilitating local projects and programmes to expand the local food system and enables the development of a food strategy,” Buchan said..."
