This Saturday: railLA Asks LA to Think Big About High-speed Rail

Urban planner and artist James Rojas believes he has found a way to develop community consensus through design and provide a process for the public to envision their ideal California High-Speed Rail project, which is now in the process of finalizing its track alignments in Northern and Southern California. A demonstration of the pioneering technique he describes as Interactive Planning will be held July 17 from 11:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m. at the Pico House in the El Pueblo district of Los Angeles. Interactive models of the 30/10 scenario for Los Angeles County and Union Station with High-Speed Rail will also be on display.

Organized by railLA and sponsored jointly by California Speaker of the Assembly John Perez and Los Angeles City Councilmember Jose Huizar, the event is intended to gather public input on how the area around Union Station will best adapt to the introduction of high-speed rail. For more information about the event, visit railLa's website.

In Honor of Stephen H. Kanner, FAIA - Please Consider A + D Museum Donation

FORM and Balcony Media give our sincere condolences to Stephen's family, firm, friends, and colleagues.
If you haven't read Frances Anderton's tribute on the DnA blog yet, please do here.

We wanted to pass this message along from Danielle Cornwell at KANNER ARCHITECTS to everyone.
(Please spread these wishes through social media/blogs/sites for optimum coverage.)

"Before his passing, Stephen mentioned that the A+D Museum was his legacy and he wanted to continue the work of educating the public in architecture and design. I was hoping to get the word out that in lieu of flowers, the family welcomes a donation in honor of Stephen to the museum www.aplusd.org. We are planning a public memorial along with a retrospective of his work at the museum on November 4th. The retrospective will run through January 16, 2011.

We are all saddened by Stephen’s passing…He was not only our boss and mentor, but a great friend as well. We are determined to honor his wish to continue the work of the firm."
