Books: Digging into Dingbats

The outgrowth of an exhibition, a new book examines LA's ubiquitous dingbat apartment buildings. Image courtesy Dingbat 2.0.

If you’ve spent any time exploring LA, you’ve seen a dingbat. They’re everywhere—boxy apartment buildings with names like The Palms or The Tropics. Over the years, architects have had something of a love/hate relationship with them. On the one hand, “their relentless efficiency,” as architect Thurman Grant calls it, is noteworthy, while their grim aesthetics (out of step with the romance their monikers conjure up) have not helped their reputation.

Events: New Urbanism Film Festival 

Next week, a new kind of film festival hits Los Angeles. For the first time, the city will play host to the first New Urbanism Film Festival, the brainchild of Josh Paget and Joel Joel Karahadian, two Angelenos with a passion for New Urbanism. Their interest in the subject led them to start a group, Noodles and New Urbanism, a monthly meet-up where developments and ideas around the topic could be discussed. It led to a blog, for members to discuss topics further, and, ultimately, the film festival, where a critical mass of like-minded people could come together on a larger scale. The festival will run four days and feature a range of films on issues relating to new urbanism. Walking tours, workshops and a podcast are all on the schedule.

We aked festival co-director Joel Karahadian a bit about more about the genesis of the project and what they hope to accomplish.

By Jack Skelley

Never Built Los Angeles, the A+D Museum exhibit co-curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin and designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects, is the talk of the town. The project (plus a staggeringly comprehensive book) spotlights significant places and plans imagined for the city that couldn’t get off the drawing board.

Showroom: Math Meets Art

These days, it seems as if 3D printing gets all the love. Hardly a day goes by without news of another development in the technique or a new product born from the process. It’s a revolutionary option—especially now as the devices becomes more accessible both in terms of price and software. But. Innovation in process and design is still alive and well in some more traditional areas.
