    Following the international competition held in 2006, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) were chosen to create initial conceptual proposals for the Civic Centre of the City of Elk Grove, California, a fast-growing suburb of Sacramento. The main objective of the Elk Grove Civic Centre Design Study was to explore a wealth of possible ideas for programmatic distribution; incorporating the city’s requirement for initial ‘visioning’ proposals that identify all the project components while keeping the opportunities for flexibility. The two hubs of the proposal, ‘urban’ (north) and ‘sports’ (south), are to be connected with a development housing all the civic elements of the programme – allowing the flexibility for all the commercial elements to be developed separately. This strategy also allows for a more economic sharing of services, maintenance and running costs of the civic programme.
