For many, designing high rises, museums and hotels would be creative outlet enough. Not so for Dan Janotta, a principal and senior designer at Johnson Fain. In the late 1980s and into the 1990s, he began designing furniture, even opening a studio while still working full time at the firm. “It was an independent, creative extension of what I did at work,” he says. After the birth of his son, “something had to give,” he recalls, and he put his furniture work on the backburner.

Kennedy Community Schools. The lecture is the second from the "On the Map 2012" series, which focuses on urban infill and redevelopment in Los Angeles. 

Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools (Photo Courtesy of Sibylle Allgaier, Heliphoto)The campus is located at the former site of the Ambassader Hotel, which was demolished in 2005. Gonzalez Goodale built the compound to relieve underperforming and overcrowded schools located in the historically underserved neighborhoods of Pico-Union and Koreatown. Unique features of the campus include the Cocoanut Grove Theater, Paul Schrade Library, state-of-the-art gymnasium, and several public art installations, including two murals by Judith Baca.

Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools (Photo Courtesy of Sibylle Allgaier, Heliphoto)Each project explored by the series will be presented as a dialogue between the design process and the larger, neighborhood context. Projects were chosen based on their challenges to previous patterns of land use.

Supercession is Thursday August 16th at 7:00 pm. General Admission is $10, Students are $5, and LA Forum members get in for free.

By James Brausell, Guest Contributor

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.
