This exchange provided an opportunity to share ideas and initiate interdisciplinary collaboration.

James Rojas, from Latino Urban Forum and Place It lead the activity for all attendees. This interactive method, composed of workshops and models, is based on project-based learning, where people retain more information by engaging all their senses. Participants are encouraged to explore all their senses when designing and constructing their respective cities in response to a “great question” posed by Rojas and inspired by what brings them together.

During the workshop, every attendee was asked to design 'LA 2050'. Everyone was given some blocks to design LA as it would look in 2050. All models were highly creative and futuristic. The ideas were then discussed and the end not was given by the Mr. Qingyun Ma, Dean of School of Architecture.

Many high end stores donate to the cause.  You can find everything from 50%-90% off, starting with 50% in the beginning and as it gets closer to the last day things continue to get marked down.  Designers  include Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, Moschino, Tom Ford just to name a few.  Makeup brands such as Pop Beauty and Smashbox.  Furniture companies include Baker, Dragonette, Marge Carson, Therien & CO, and many more. 

It is a great event selling top of the line, really amazing pieces, at low prices.  It is great for holiday shopping.  I went last year on the last day when everything was 90% off and there was still a ton of great stuff left.  I bought brands such as Trina Turk, Marc Jacobs, Tadashi, Laundry, and BCBG, all pieces ranging from $20-$50 which were originally really expensive!!
