UCLA Architecture and Urban Design (A.UD) will carry the narrative of modern architecture in L.A. forward from its influential past to the future with Extreme IDEAS: Architecture at the Intersection, a series of programs that chart a dynamic new future for architecture. The programs will look beyond the field's traditional boundaries and explore topics arising from unexpected quarters—film, automotive, aerospace, and tech industries—in order to explore rapidly emerging new technologies, possibilities for interdisciplinary growth, and the role of Los Angeles in the evolution of architecture. Major support for Extreme IDEAS has been provided by the Getty Foundation.
