YouTube: Cultivating Community

Liam Collins, Head of YouTube Space LA

IDEAS Lectures



How to Bring Together the Most Creative People in the World?

The YouTube Space LA is a state of the art production facility in Los Angeles, CA, designed specifically for YouTube creators to produce original digital video content, from production and editing through uploading to YouTube. Run by YouTube's inhouse experts from the Next Lab, the Space serves as a creative production facility for both established and emerging YouTube creators.

Liam Collins is the Head of YouTube Space LA, Google's flagship collaborative and production facility. In its first year, Space LA hosted over 10,000 visitors and 1500 YouTube channels. The Space is part of the Next Lab, created through the acquisition by Google/YouTube of Next New Networks in 2011, where Mr. Collins served as Chief Operating Officer. Before joining NNN, Mr. Collins practiced law at Gunderson Dettmer LLP, specializing in media and telecommunications. 

The IDEAS Lecture Series charts a dynamic new future for architecture by engaging speakers from a broad range of disciplines. The series looks beyond the field's traditional boundaries and explores topics arising from unexpected quarters—entertainment, 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. The Architecture and Urban Design IDEAS Lecture Series is generously supported by Paul and Herta Amir.
