We may be hitting the dog days of summer, but that doesn’t mean the AIA|Los Angeles is taking the month of August off. Instead, they have a great group of events planned in the coming days and weeks, with opportunities and seminars that will challenge, inform and inspire.

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.
Just as the weather starts to get a bit cooler (we Angelenos have our fingers crossed that the cooling trend continues), it seems like the events calendar starts to heat up. In particular, our good friends at the AIA|LA have an action-packed fall planned with events and tours that will knock your socks off.
This week is a busy one for design-minded Angelenos—for the fifth year in a row, La Cienega Design Quarter's Legends of La Cienega rolls out. On May 9 and 10, some of the biggest names in design will hit town and participate in a range of compelling talks and panels.
FORM Magazine is pleased to be a part of this year's events. We're the media sponsor of SOLI Architectural Surface's "Doing the Wright Thing" panel discussion on Thursday, May 9, at 10:30 AM. The event will explore the issues around the preservation of four of Frank Lloyd Wright's textile block homes in Los Angeles. AIA|Los Angeles executive director Nicci Solomons will moderate, and Steven Ehrlich, FAIA; Franco Vecchio; and Jeffrey Herr, AIA, will participate.
Space is limited for all the events and going fast, so be sure to register today!
