Rancho Design approved for DD

[SPF:a]’s winning scheme for the Rancho Cienega Sports Complex (RCSC) was finalized and approved for the design development phase.

Located in Baldwin Hills, the RCSC boasts a rich history and legacy: it has played an important role in the development of numerous professional athletes including Venus and Serena Williams, who trained there as children, and multiple NFL players who got their start with the Dorsey High football team – whose home games are hosted at this site. Last February, Studio Pali Fekete architects [SPF:a] was selected by the City of Los Angeles to envision the redevelopment and expansion of the RCSC with their winning design (developed in partnership with Hood Design Studio – landscape architects, and Buro Happold Engineering). [SPF:a] was selected over two other invited submissions and will overhaul the master plan of the existing RCSC and add a series of new buildings to the site.
