Professor Craig Hodgetts credits the “unencumbered and exceedingly emotional” style of Miles Davis for shaping the direction of his architectural work. He also names the sounds of Vangelis and Terry Riley as inspirations in a guest DJ set that is a tribute to all kinds of creative work. Hodgetts and his partner alumni Ming Fung (M.Arch. I ' 80) designed LACMA’s exhibit on California design from1930 to 1965 that was launched as part of the Pacific Standard Time initiative.
