In the wake of the brutal electoral fight over Measure S, long-simmering debates over the future of Los Angeles have entered the public consciousness.
The city continues to deal with an interminable housing crisis, urgent environmental challenges, and a changing economy. We are having serious conversations and making active choices about whether we want to be urban or suburban, dense or sprawling, classic or contemporary.
In that spirit, as part of our current exhibition CityLab, Times 10, the A+D Museum hosts LAB Talk #2: LA Emerging: Six Ways Forward. Emerging architects will put forth not just two, but six distinct visions for how Los Angeles might adapt and evolve. LAB Talk #2 is hosted by Christopher Hawthorne, architecture critic for The Los Angeles Times. It is sponsored bnim and Gensler, who have graciously enabled us to open the event to the public, free of charge.
Whatever your stake in the city’s future, their ideas are guaranteed to stimulate your imagination and provoke searching inquiry and conversation.
