The goal of ENCOUNTER LA is a community and professional advisory group for LATTC Architecture and Environmental Design Program.
Through ENCOUNTER LA the LATTC Architecture and Environmental Design program provides design and mapping service for 
the community by the community. 

We have so much work to finish and because we are all about DOING, ENCOUNTER LA will only meet twice this year at the end of each semester.  
But please, NOTICE that ENCOUNTER @ Community will meet in other locations at Community spaces like the one Andrew Williams just started.
I will have an ENCOUNTER @ Community also at the PUEDE INNOVATION LABORATORY coming soon.

help me reach out to our community about PUEDE INNOVATION LABORATORY workshops. 
You can reach out to me and see how we can facilitate your projects. PUEDE INNOVATION LABORATORY has an incredible vision and history of DOING. 

It counts with the best metal and wood laser machines. These machines will facilitate the DOING of projects to beautify our communities.
