In todays inbox: Benjamin Bratton (Razorfish, Sci-Arc faculty, etc) will be on Talk of the City on KPCC 89.3 today (?) discussing the SCI_Arc Terrorism + Architecture symposium on a panel on local universities’ reactions to 9-11. Live at 1:00pm, replayed at 9:00pm. Listen on in.
SCI-Arc thesis wrapped up yesterday with a party I sadly had to miss. I hear there was grilled tuna… hm. Keep posted for a collection of images from the work, coming up this week or as soon as I can format it all. I swear the Griffith Observatory photos are coming too. I swear.
Other things coming up: A new architecture and design museum – amazingly called A+D Architecture and Design Museum – opens in downtown LA on January 24th with a show called Urban Innovations: Shrine to Junipero Sera.
“The exhibition displays the work of four architects – Frank Gehry & Associates, Morphosis, Venturi Scott Brown, and Jose Raphael Moneo – all of whom were invited by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to design a hypothetical shrine to Junipero Serra.”
The gallery is in the Bradbury Building (of Bladerunner fame) on 304 south broadway, downtown LA. website here
