First it was Trading Spaces renovating rooms, then Extreme Makeover took on whole houses, not to be out done, Town Haul on TLC redid the towns of Jeffersonville, N.Y. and Laurens, S.C. (We know, it only seems fair to include the genre original in here too).

So with all that covered, the only way to go is big, like how about renovating L.A. for 2106? Yep, that’s what the History Channel asked seven professional architectural teams from L.A and a student team from Harvard to envision.

The challenge is actually a contest that will net the winning team a $10,000 prize and the chance to pocket another 10 grand going head-to-head over the Internet next month with the winners of identical "City of the Future" competitions in New York and Chicago.Eric Owen Moss Architects won the L.A. contest. Moss’ plan, along with the New York and Chicago winners, will be posted in coming weeks on the History Channel’s website. The public can vote from Jan. 2 to Feb. 2 to determine the winner.
