Advanced Topics Studio with Wonne Ickx
M.Arch., Third Year
This studio will research the relation between modern architecture and the ground it occupies, as a continuation of previous studios taught by PRODUCTORA at UCLA. The site chosen for the project is in downtown Los Angeles: complex in its topography as well as layered, in historic, spatial and programmatic terms. Close to the buzzing Grand Central Market, the site is adjacent to the historial 1901 “Angel’s Flight” railway, and the large California Plaza Development by Arthur Erickson, including Arato Isozaki's MOCA.
