The HKS LA Design Fellowship is a three-day design charrette, where students and professionals work together, to solve a complex design challenge.
Each year, the HKS LA Design Fellowship has an open call to local college students and HKS employees to participate in a three-day design charrette at the HKS Los Angeles office. Teams made up of students and professionals are given a design challenge to solve in three days with practical design solutions and strategies.
Design challenges are shaped around solving issues affecting the greater Los Angeles community. At the end of day three, each team is given the opportunity to present their concepts to a panel of local community leaders from different industries.
2019 Design Challenge
1932, 1984, and in 2028 the City of Angels will again be hosting the Summer Olympics. The LA Olympics committee is dedicated to making the 2028 Olympic Games “the most sustainable in decades” that will continue to give back to the city and its communities beyond the Games.
The 2019 HKS LA Design Fellowship presents the challenge to identify and propose sustainable opportunities for impactful, practical, and lasting environmental solutions that benefit the LA community before, during and after the Olympics.
