By Michael Webb

The New York Architecture and Design Film Festival was SRO last October, and it’s being reprised in LA, March 12-16, at the downtown Los Angeles Theater Center, 514 South Spring Street. Highlights include Tadao Ando: from Emptiness to Infinity, documentaries on visionary architects Paolo Soleri and Eugene Tssui, and a community building program in the poorest county of North Carolina. I’ll be moderating a panel on the restoration of classic modern houses with Kelly Lynch, Michael Boyd, and Frank Escher on the afternoon of Sunday 16th and that will be followed by The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat, a portrait of the little gem in Lone Pine, CA, that Kelly Lynch and Mitch Glazer lovingly restored. Featured designers include Massimo and Lella Vignelli, and the British maverick Paul Smith. The scandal of Chavez Ravine and the misguided reinvention of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia will be explored, along with a dozen other projects, large and small. It’s must-attend event, and you should buy your tickets asap at adfilmfest.com.

Eager to work with a Japanese designer, especially one whose designs reflected a spirit akin to the great Hans Wegner’s, the firm reached out to Pritzker Prize–winning architect Tadao Ando to gauge his interest in collaborating. His answer was quick and affirmative.

For the past 10 years, Fouladi Projects has been exhibiting the work of a wide range of artists at its San Francisco gallery. Recently, the gallery, under founder Alexandra Holly Fouladi, introduced the Maker Program. Now, exhibitions featuring the work of functional artists will rotate with shows for fine artists. "The Maker Program," says Fouladi, "allows us to share the work of amazing artists and encourages us to bring the work into our lives— the integration of art and life." Intrigued by the new endeavor, we spoke with the gallerist about the program and the relationship between fine and functional art.

A conversation with Meg Touborg kicks off a new series on building and managing your design business. Image courtesy Meg Touborg/Metworks Inc.Your ideas are great. Your projects are spectacular. But, when it comes to the nuts and bolts of running a business—any kind of business—all of us can always use a little guidance. From marketing and public relations to intellectural property and employment law to human resources and finance, maintaining and growing a successful firm means a lot of moving parts. We're pleased to present the first in a series of conversations with experts outside of architecture and design whom we've asked to weigh in with tips, suggestions and ideas on the ingredients that go into a building a thriving practice. Our hope is that each one will get you thinking big and strategically.
