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.

Los Angeles might have a car-crazed reputation but this city also has a vibrant community that likes to take bikes, buses and sidewalks, too. So GOOD is teaming up with railLA, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and de LaB for an event that shows how L.A. can move beyond cars. They're holding it at the exhibition LA Beyond Cars: A Global Perspective on Rail and Space which envisions the future of high speed rail in Los Angeles. And they're challenging everyone who attends to use alternative transportation. That's right—the goal is to make this a completely car-free party.
