A.UD SYMPOSIUM In and Out of Pictures

“In and Out of Pictures” is the closing event for the installation “The Kid Gets out of the Picture” - currently on view at Materials & Applications in Silverlake. The installation is a collaboration between four practices that were given the taskof re-creating the seminal elements of an English picturesque garden: a hill, a rock, a hut, and trees. The purpose of the symposium is two-fold: first, to propose a sustained parallel between the contemporary architectural moment and early 19th-century landscape design; and second, to sharpen the distinctions between varieties of practice that would include picture-making as a significant component of architectural labor. Participants will include Laurel Broughton, Benjamin Freyinger, Andrew Holder, Andrew Kovacs, Sylvia Lavin, Anna Neimark, Jason Payne, and Heather Roberge.

EVENTS OFF SITE


Friday, February 3 | 7pm
cityLAb, Times Ten
Exhibition at the A + D MUSEUM
February 3 - April 9, 2017
For the past ten years, cityLAB - UCLA has been at the center of innovation thought about the architecture of the city, particularly in Los Angeles. The “cityLAb, Times Ten” exhibition showcases the lab’s research on some of the critical challenges facing the 21st century metropolis ranging from housing to density and transportation. A series of evening panels called “Lab Talks” will bring people together to debate design’s role in the city. Collaborative, experimental projects serve as prototypes of progressive architecture that holds multiplier effects, with the potential to impact the urban fabric of Southern California and beyond. The work from cityLAB is exhibited in three categories: Desk, Neighbor, and Place. Looking to the future, creative projects from six of Los Angeles’ most talented young architects explore the city’s coming decade.

Exhibition walk-through with cityLAB Director, Dana Cuff, Professor of Architecture and Urban Design
