Events: What's Happening in November from AIA|LA

Before running through AIA|LA’s events planned for November, we wanted to take a moment to congratulate all of the winners of organization’s Design Awards. You can visit here for a slideshow of the Design Award winners and here for the Next LA winners. They also have a rundown of the ceremony and before and after-parties, all held at three iconic Downtown LA locations. We’re planning extensive coverage of the winners in our January/February issue, so be sure to keep an eye out for that, too.

Running through the month of a November is a show at the AIA|LA Gallery on the work of Jeff Matsuno. A native Angeleno, Matsuno lived and worked in Italy for seven years, before returning to LA. His work explores architecture and the passage of time.

On November 6, there’s another installment of the City Leaders Breakfast Series. This time, participants will get a chance to meet with City Council Member Gil Cedillo, of the First District. The breakfasts are a great opportunity to connect with a range of civic officials to discuss visions for LA’s future.

For devotees of the organization’s tours, there’s a terrific one on November 11—a visit to the State Bar of California offices downtown.  Located in a 1958 structure that had been vacant for 20 years, LEAN ARCH was commissioned to open up the building to allow more natural light in. Principal James R. Meyer will take participants through for an in-depth look at the work.

Finally, the AIA|LA Healthcare Committee presents The American Medical School—Identifying Innovations for the Future of USA Hospital Design on November 13 at CO Architects. The event will explore how changes to American medical schools’ designs will in turn inform the design of hospitals going forward. 

For more information on any of these events, be sure to visit AIA|LA’s Web site.

Events: What's Happening with Our Industry Partner—AIA|LA

This month, the AIA|LA has a tour planned of Caruso Affiliated's 8500 Burton Way. Photography courtesy Caruso Affiliated. We’ve hit September. The easy rhythms of the summer are yielding to the brisker tempo of fall. It’s true for us here at FORM, and it’s true for our friends at the AIA|LA, who are kicking off the first month of autumn with a bang-up calendar of events, lectures and even an exhibition.

of Johnson Fain, the Los Angeles design firm where he’s
been designing tall buildings for 30 years. In his new
book, Performative Skyscraper: Tall Building Design Now,
