A Partnership of AIA Los Angeles and USC Architecture: BIM EDGE + BIM GAP
August 22–23, 2014
BIM GAP will feature presentations about the bridging GAPs between BIM tools (analysis, construction, facilities management, and more) and also bridging the GAPs between BIM people (contractors, architects, owners, managers, subs, consultants). Learn how professionals are dealing with these gaps towards realizing the full potential of BIM. Who do you call when you need BIM guidance? EDGE examines potential partners in working with BIM beyond your firm’s current capabilities: BIM coordinators, consultants, modeling services, others.

Over 40 festival programs will explore the cultural richness and diversity of our local architectural and design community as well as provide a platform for conversation about our changing landscape and its implications for a city in a time of rapidly intensifying housing needs.

Events: Celebrating and Preserving Architecture in Los Angeles

This weekend, the LA Conservancy hosts a walking tour of Downtown LA's Arts District. Also on for weekend is LA Forum's ForumFest 2013, honoring architect Michael Maltzan. Photo by Annie Laskey/L.A. Conservancy.This weekend is a big one for architecture and design lovers in Los Angeles. On Saturday, November 9, The Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design will host its annual fundraiser, ForumFest 2013. This year, the honoree will be architect Michael Maltzan, and the event will be held at Inner-City Arts, a building of Maltzan’s own design. 

Head back to Downtown LA on Sunday, November 10, for the LA Conservancy’s tour of the Arts District. Over the last few years, the area has experienced a renaissance, becoming a destination for food and art. The neighborhood also has been on the Conservancy’s advocacy radar, where the staff has been actively working to preserve the endangered 1888 Pickle Works Building, a portion of which was already demolished to make way for the expanded First Street Bridge. 

Besides a chance to see the exterior of the Pickle Works building, tour attendees will get exclusive access to some neighborhood gems. “People are opening up their doors and letting us see how they’re using these buildings in unique ways,” says Sarah Weber, the Conservancy’s Director of Education. “They are quite spectacular.” Included will be tours of spaces in the Challenge Dairy Building, the Toy Factory Lofts and the Biscuit Factory Lofts. Stops at SCI-Arc and Angel City Brewery are also on the agenda.

“The Arts District is a hot area, but people don’t get inside these buildings and get a chance to see how residents live,” says Weber. “The tour will give you that chance— and open some eyes.”
