Thanksgiving Dress Rehearsal

Our studio precursor to Thursday's national celebration. Brace yourself for the afternoon tryptophan coma.

ConRAC Breaks Ground

The Consolidated Car Rental Facility (ConRAC) project at LAX broke ground yesterday. The project is of particular importance to the city as it sets in motion opportunity for future development at the Eastern terminus of the LAX Gateway. Additionally, it provides reinforcement of the streetscape along La Cienega Boulevard and will connect to the tram taking passengers into the terminal area at APM Plaza.

Intrepid. Fierce. Promoted.

RELM is proud to announce the promotion of several staff members, the first inaugural class of promotions since our studio rebrand in January 2017. Our studio's ascent is testament to their valued contributions and commitment to practice. Congratulations to all.

RELM Celebrates another LAUSD win with CO Architects + Bernards

RELM, in collaboration with CO Architects and Bernards has won the LAUSD Ascot Elementary design competition. We are thrilled our landscape will reintroduce urban nature in a meaningful way in this South Los Angeles neighborhood. Blacktop will soon be replaced with trees, understory planting, turf playing fields, and sports courts.

Urban Wild

Yesterday, while attending the City Parks Alliance Conference in Denver, we got to tour SPREE's (South Platte River Environmental Education) summer camp in action. Run by the Greenway Foundation for over 40 years, the non-profit introduces tens of thousands of children to the South Platte River, developing awareness and connection to urban rivers via excursions, weekend events, and summer camps.

RELM Takes To The Rink

Throwback or come back? RELM's summer outing at Moonlight Roll proved roller skating is alive and well. The 20-somethings showed the 40-somethings how it's done. So much FUN!!!

Welcome Ladies

RELM is pleased to welcome three formidable interns this summer: Yun Wang (University of Pennsylvania), Wanxing Lin (University of Southern California), and Yu Cheng (University of Virginia). Each brings with her a compelling repertoire of visual intelligence, wit, and humor. Three weeks in, and they are already contributing mightily to project work and studio culture.
