(Un)Earthing Tustin team's encounter with local enthusiasm is far from an isolated incident. Ex-base redevelopment presents the kind of mutual benefits communities, designers and cities managing these properties are allowed to discover through the framework of Competition. The hardest part is filling the role of facilitator with an architect aware of the gold in their yard.
At the Venice Biennale, these candidates are being presented in spades. Take a moment perusing our handy "Base Redevelopment Guide" before your big trek to the Palazzo Bembo. (If you're not heading to Venice in the next few months, perhaps the exhibit will come to you...)
