Krista Becker, FAIA was a member on the panel discussion “Redefining the Arc of a Successful Career,” Carissa Shrock, AIA spoke on the panel “Are Women Led Project Teams More Effective?” moderated by Frances Anderton, and Katie Carley moderated the panel “Diversity: Why Does it Matter?”

In its first ever symposium dedicated to women, AIA Los Angeles brought women in architecture to the spotlight. Motivated by The American Institute of Architects’ effort to re-position itself as a more equitable organization (and inspired by AIA San Francisco’s annual conference The Missing 32 % Project), AIA|LA coordinated a design symposium that highlighted best practices in women leadership in design. The symposium served as a forum to hear from emerging professionals who are currently navigating the pathway towards a successful career. It featured inspirational and energetic presentations that showcase women who are leading the design profession in architecture, art, social impact and innovation. 

The symposium took place on February 27. 2015 at the Skylight Studios–Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City.

On June 5, 2015, the City of Santa Monica issued the “deemed complete” approval of the Providence Saint John’s Health Center South Campus Phase Two Master Plan application, and Development Review Permit (DRP) applications for eight new buildings. This is a momentous milestone for the project, confirming Providence Saint John’s successful fulfillment of their Development Agreement’s vested rights ensuring that the project will be further developed in its entirety.

The vision for Providence Saint John’s South Campus Master Plan was developed by Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners, in collaboration with Perkins Eastman, through a programmatic assessment process and within the framework of a Development Agreement established in 1998 between the City of Santa Monica and Saint John’s Health Center. The South Campus Master Plan creates a world-class Health Center and an integrated North and South campus. It replaces surface parking with thoughtful development and vibrant open spaces that will contribute positively to the City’s existing urban fabric. A major design concept establishes a pedestrian connection that initiates from the existing Mullin Plaza on the North Campus, across Santa Monica Boulevard to a new plaza, Saint John’s Square, on the South Campus, and then along an upgraded 21st Street “living street” that leads to a new South Garden along Broadway. A major goal of the South Campus development is to promote health and wellness programs, and other research and ambulatory services that can contribute to community health initiatives. A strong urbanistic approach was taken, integrated with Providence Saint John’s institutional and medical service needs, to create a setting that is both responsive to the Providence Saint John’s varied constituents, and also to the greater community of Santa Monica.

On June 5, 2015, the City of Santa Monica issued the “deemed complete” approval of the Providence Saint John’s Health Center South Campus Phase Two Master Plan application, and Development Review Permit (DRP) applications for eight new buildings. This is a momentous milestone for the project, confirming Providence Saint John’s successful fulfillment of their Development Agreement’s vested rights ensuring that the project will be further developed in its entirety.

The vision for Providence Saint John’s South Campus Master Plan was developed by Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners, in collaboration with Perkins Eastman, through a programmatic assessment process and within the framework of a Development Agreement established in 1998 between the City of Santa Monica and Saint John’s Health Center. The South Campus Master Plan creates a world-class Health Center and an integrated North and South campus. It replaces surface parking with thoughtful development and vibrant open spaces that will contribute positively to the City’s existing urban fabric. A major design concept establishes a pedestrian connection that initiates from the existing Mullin Plaza on the North Campus, across Santa Monica Boulevard to a new plaza, Saint John’s Square, on the South Campus, and then along an upgraded 21st Street “living street” that leads to a new South Garden along Broadway. A major goal of the South Campus development is to promote health and wellness programs, and other research and ambulatory services that can contribute to community health initiatives. A strong urbanistic approach was taken, integrated with Providence Saint John’s institutional and medical service needs, to create a setting that is both responsive to the Providence Saint John’s varied constituents, and also to the greater community of Santa Monica.

Krista Becker, FAIA was a member on the panel discussion “Redefining the Arc of a Successful Career,” Carissa Shrock, AIA spoke on the panel “Are Women Led Project Teams More Effective?” moderated by Frances Anderton, and Katie Carley moderated the panel “Diversity: Why Does it Matter?”

In its first ever symposium dedicated to women, AIA Los Angeles brought women in architecture to the spotlight. Motivated by The American Institute of Architects’ effort to re-position itself as a more equitable organization (and inspired by AIA San Francisco’s annual conference The Missing 32 % Project), AIA|LA coordinated a design symposium that highlighted best practices in women leadership in design. The symposium served as a forum to hear from emerging professionals who are currently navigating the pathway towards a successful career. It featured inspirational and energetic presentations that showcase women who are leading the design profession in architecture, art, social impact and innovation. 

The symposium took place on February 27. 2015 at the Skylight Studios–Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City.
