Almost Free today: A Home and A Place

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

Today, I am torn--between two great events. I'll share both and you decide where you want to go. Here goes...

Tonight, one of my favorite "mindfests," Design East of La Brea explores placemaking at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions with "Making Place: Painted Over/Under Part 3." Curated by de Lab's newest host, Erin Cullerton, the exhibition brings together abstract works of architecture firms showcasing vignettes of the L.A. landscape. I'd be curious to see how L.A. abstract looks like. I wonder if I'd recognize it.

A panel moderated by KCRW's Frances Anderton during the event is also centered on "the ways thoughtful placemaking has shaped the city of Los Angeles."

If the thought of Los Angeles as whole is too much for you, how about simply starting at home? The Architect's Newspaper hosts a panel at SPF:a Gallery in Culver City that gathers homebuilders and architects working on "improving the architectural quality of residential
developments and getting architects more involved with mass-produced and tract housing. The panel's moderated by the paper's West Coast editor, Sam Lubell.
