La Fabrica Selected As One of Three Finalists for Grand Park Shade Competition

La Fabrica composed of Oscar Corletto, Karni Hadidian, Luis Ixta, and Kristine Edinchikyan with their design, Sonar, has been selected as one of the three finalists for the Grand Park Shade competition. Oscar Corletto is the woodshop and metalshop shopmaster and an adjunct faculty member at Woodbury School of Architecture.

What is the Grand Park Shade Competition?

Thanks to the Goldhirsh Foundation’s My LA2050 Grants Challenge to make Los Angeles the best place to play, Grand Park is piloting the installation of a permanent shade structure featuring the design of a local artist at The Park for Everyone in Downtown Los Angeles.

Over 50 submissions were received from L.A. artists. Now it’s time to help the selection committee decide on which of the three final designs will be piloted this summer.

Vote Now

It is up to a public vote to decide which design will win and be built as a permanent structure to shade Olive Court in the center of Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles.

Voting ends this coming Friday, March 25, at midnight, and LA Fabrica needs some Woodbury University support and votes to help our vision for Sonar come true. Please vote here.
