Sometimes working behind the scenes can be very influential. Architects are not only tasked with making great buildings and places for a variety of clients, but sometimes they can serve as consultants to cities in the role of a “peer review architect”. This role requires architects to critique the work of other architects, providing input on behalf of a city with the intention of getting the best possible result.
For the past few years, we have been working as peer review architects for the cities of Long Beach, Downey, Paramount, and Anaheim, and have come across a range of interesting drawings – from efforts that just needed some tweaking, to designs that needed a little more help. Lately there’s been a lot of activity in Downey, and we wanted to share what’s been built or currently on the drawing boards, and how we’ve contributed to the process.
