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.

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.
