The summer months tend to be quiet, but for the AIA|LA, July is shaping up to be busy, with a variety of events and programs planned, not to mention an important deadline to keep in mind. On the tour side of things, there are two planned that are must-dos. On July 13, set your GPS for South Pasadena and another edition of the Spring 2014 Breakfast with the Architect Tour and a visit to Koning Eizenberg's "The Sobieski House," a sustainable, indoor-outdoor compound that makes the most of its large lot. Two days later, take a peek at the recently remodeled Elysian. Once conceived of as the headquarters of the Metropolitan Water District, the William Pereira–designed structure has been given new life by David Lawrence Gray Architects. Swing by the tour to get the full scoop on its transformation.
On the education side of things, sign up for two ProDev Series events—The New 2013 Title-24 Residential Energy Code and Reducing Risk as an Architect: From Contracting Through Construction Administration and Close Out, on the 22 and 25 respectively. There's also an ARE Building Systems Prep Course—The Amber Seminar offered this month as well.
Finally, don't forget nominations are due for the 2015 AIA|LA Board of Directors on July 10. Visit the AIA | LA's Web site for more information.
