Little Tokyo Design Week, a four-day architecture and design event taking place July 14-17, 2011, will honor Japanese design and technology and its intersection with trends emerging in Los Angeles. The event will promote sustainability and creativity as it pushes innovators, corporations and members of the artistic community to explore possibilities for a “New Urban Lifestyle.”
Programs and symposia will integrate community partners, restaurants and retailers with Little Tokyo’s Big Three cultural institutions: the Japanese American National Museum, the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center, and the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. Several exhibits will showcase student projects from USC, UCLA, the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and the Art Center College of Design as new designs and projects are presented by sponsoring companies like Toyota.
