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.
Last month, our publisher, Balcony Press, had the pleasure of sponsoring a signing to celebrate the release of Scott Johnson's new book, Performative Skyscraper: Tall Building Design Now. The event featured remarks by Qingyun Ma, Dean and Della + Harry MacDonald Chair, USC School of Architecture. It was held at Johnson Fain Studios in Downtown LA.
To purchase the book, (all proceeds go to the USC School of Architecture) contact Natalie Egnatchik.
