Davit System, Davit Carriage
This is another bold architectural addition to the Los Angeles market. The academic building is nestled within the dorm structure that is clad in scrim and metal panel. A davit carriage system handles access to the frontage metal panel and a portion of the east dorm wind. Portable davits provide access to the rest of the structure with the exception of the academic building which is served by combination of anindustrial rope access system and ground based aerial work platforms. All designed by OLYMPIQUE.
Bringing student housing, instructional facilities, and administrative offices to one location, ELA condenses the diversity of a college campus into an urban site. Evoking the concentrated energy of East-coast metropolitan centers in an iconic Los Angeles setting, a rich dialogue emerges between students’ educational background and their professional futures.
