The City of Los Angeles has announced Los Angeles-based design studio Project Room as the winner of L.A. Lights the Way – a first-of-its-kind competition to design and create a new standard streetlight for the city. Mayor Eric Garcetti along with Chief Design Officer Christopher Hawthorne and the Bureau of Street Lighting unveiled the winning design at LACMA’s Urban Light. Project Room’s winning design is a multifunctional pole with a bundle of tubes where each service – roadway light, pedestrian light, and telecommunications equipment – is assigned a dedicated tube. Additional features such as 5G equipment, EV charging, shade fixtures and a bench can be added as needed to meet the diverse needs of our communities now and in the future.
