LA Archive Gallery presents The New American Porch

Architect Davida Rochlin only started to think about the new American porch after devoting much of her life to pondering the old American porch. She spent her childhood in a Craftsman house that had “all kinds of porches,” she said. As a graduate student in architecture at UC Berkeley, Rochlin traveled across the country studying verandas, balconies, stoops, back porches, front porches, sleeping porches, screened porches, wrap-around porches, you-name-it porches — all for her master’s thesis. Fittingly for high summer, Rochlin has returned to the subject with the just-opened exhibit “The New American Porch” in a pop-up gallery in the Barry Building, a Brentwood Midcentury landmark.

The exhibit is open August 6-30, 2010 with an opening reception August 21 from 4-7pm at 11973 San Vicente Boulevard, #101, Los Angeles, CA 90049. The gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm.
