Despite the searing temperatures it really is fall, and the AIA|LA has the line-up of events to prove it. The great minds at our LA chapter have planned tours, seminars, workshops and more to get you inspired and get you thinking throughout the month. Before you do anything, though, be sure to get your tickets to the organization’s marquee October happening—the 2014 Design Awards on the 29th, held at the Million Dollar Theater Downtown. Come out to support your friends and colleagues and have a fantastic evening to boot!

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.
