The Central City Association today gathered for the monthly meeting of the organization, focusing on architecture in an architectural showcase panel entitled, “Looking Up, Moving Forward.”
The panel may have been more aptly named, “Looking to Integrate, Moving International,” with the panel focusing mostly on opportunities to engage architecture with infrastructure, along with cultural and social institutions, in international cities and domestic locations other than the city and county of Los Angeles. According to Alice Kimm, of John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects, the recession requires that architects to ask, “How do we identify ourselves in our work in the world out there?”
FACE of a Nation - Film Teaser - Shanghai's Expo 2010 Closes. Did Your Country Show A Good Face? Did the U.S.?
A film production from USC School of Architecture and USC School of Cinematic Arts gives us this provocative film teaser to FACE of a Nation. The team, composed of USC Professor/Architect Mina Chow, architecture journalist Edward Lifson, USC Cinema's Norman Hollyn, and documentary producer/filmmaker Alessandra Pasquini, probes the concept of "face" in Chinese culture and whether country pavilions successfully represented themselves to the world and China. The final film is slated for completion next year.
KCRW's Frances Anderton provides a good summary of the expo and the U.S. situation at her DnA blog.
Did your country represent well? Did the U.S.? Give us your opinion and thoughts.
