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.
