As AN recently reported, AEG’s plans for an expanded Los Angeles Convention Center are looking dim, so LA’s Bureau of Engineering’s is planning a design competition for the facility’s expansion and renovation. The Bureau recently released its Task Order Solicitation (PDF) for the project, shedding more light on what’s to come.

Based on “qualifications and relevant project experience,” three teams will be shortlisted for the $350 million project. Those teams will each receive $200,000 to “develop and present conceptual designs,” including  models, renderings, plans, cost estimates, phasing plans, etc. The juried competition will start on September 15, with designs due on December 8. Responses are due on July 24, but according to Ted Allen, Deputy City Engineer, the competition will only be open to the Bureau’s 18 On-Call Architectural Firms, so if you’re not on that list you’re out of luck. The winner will be chosen based on both “creativity of the design” and “practicality,” so some of those firms may be out of luck as well.
