Cuban Modernism Lecture at MOLAA, August 22

The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is proud to present a series of architecture and design lectures. Experts in these fields will speak about the various architectural and design styles present in Latin America, particularly Cuba, while providing a historical context for the different style movements which have influenced that country’s architecture. The next lecture will be about Cuban Modernism on August 22, presented by Rosa Lowinger, a recognized international expert in the conservation of built heritage.

Spare, geometric, and light as air, Cuban architecture of the 1940s and 1950s arose directly out of the international modernist style. By looking at buildings such as Max Borges’ Tropicana Cabaret as well as examples of domestic architecture, we will see how Cuba’s use of the international style was directly related to its political and social milieu at the time.

Air Force Base gets Solar Power Installation

 Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona is set to get a 15 megawatt solar power installation that will create 550 new green jobs during construction, which will take about a year.  It’s also going to take a huge bite out of the base’s carbon footprint, supplying almost half of the base’s peak electrical demand.  Luke currently spends more than $5 million per year on electricity and uses more than 60 million kilowatt hours annually in mission support.

New Estadio Chivas by Jean Marie Massaud and Daniel Pouzet

The new Estadio Chivas by French architects Jean Marie Massaud and Daniel Pouzet of Studio Massaud
officially opened late last month. Located in Guadalajara, Mexico, the stadium was designed
to resemble that of an erupting volcano. Consisting of 45,000 seats the structure is enveloped with sloping parkland that rises up to the stadium's upper reaches. When games are not being played the slopes become a public park.

Keeping with the theme of an erupting volcano, the stadium's white membrane is intended
to look like a cloud hovering above the volcano. Rather than creating a parking lot around the exterior of the stadium the architects chose to incorporate the 8500 parking spaces underneath the sloping sides of the volcano.

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.
