OPEN HOUSE | STATE SECRETS is about the dark side of architecture – ‘architecture’ in both the abstract political use of the term and the literal experience of normative buildings. Conceiving of this exhibition as a laboratory, Farrah Karapetian, Mitch McEwen, and architectural collective Bureau E.A.S.T will accumulate work in SUPERFRONT’s space between July 6th and August 22nd. SUPERFRONT’s space at the Pacific Design Center becomes a studio for the exploration of the parameters of photography, sculpture, mapping, and architecture.

Interviewed by Frances Anderton, Host of KCRW's DnA: Design and Architecture, Tuesday, July 6.
After launching his architecture career in Los Angeles over 20 years ago, Michael Maltzan quickly distinguished himself with socially conscious buildings that depart from the hulking luxury structures of celebrity architects. Maltzan visits Zócalo to talk about his work, whether good design can be affordable, and how architecture shapes our lives. For more information, or to make a reservation, click here.
Leo A Daly, project architects for the renovation of the LAX terminal, spent nearly 12 years and almost a billion dollars to add, among other things, a 45,000-square-foot baggage screening area, massive upgrades to the arrival and ticketing lobbies and concourses, four new airport lounges, new furniture, restrooms, accessibility measures, elevators and escalators, better temperature control and ventilation, and a new electrical system. Renovations also included two new gates capable of handling the enormous Airbus A380 aircraft, multimedia installations, and “dynamic color and brighter views,” said Keith Mawson, corporate director of aviation programs for Leo A Daly.
