We could've sworn on Frank Lloyd Wright's ghost that October barely started, and yet Halloween festivities are upon us. As always, the city is abuzz with creative folks expanding the possibilities of how architectural design and practice can be reinterpreted, bringing attention to what in the urban environment is constantly overlooked. Wondering where other design-inclined folks are gathering in the Greater L.A. area? Bustler has compiled a snappy list of noteworthy happenings around town that are worth checking out.
Check back regularly at the start of the week to stay up to date. Here are the Bustler editorial team's latest recommendations for Los Angeles.
Between East and West: Day One and Two | October 25-26, recommended by Alexander Walter
Don't miss this two-day lecture series at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design's Perloff Hall: organized by Hitoshi Abe, the event presents the globe-spanning work of Japanese architects Hiroshi Ota, Takeyama Kiyoshi Sey, Nadim Karam, Osamu Tsukihashi, Kazumi Kudo, Hiroshi Horiba, and Riken Yamamoto.
Next Up: LA River | October 29, recommended by Justine Testado (and the entire Bustler editorial team)
Archinect and the A+D Museum are excited to present the latest installment of “Next Up”! This live-podcasting event features a series of short interviews and guided group discussions revolving around the hotly-debated L.A. River revitalization, and what the landmark project could entail for the city's future. Participants include Frances Anderton (KCRW DnA host), Christopher Hawthorne (LA Times), Elizabeth Timme (LA-Más), Steven Appleton (LA River Kayak Safari) and more.
NASA Orbit Pavilion | Opening on October 29, recommended by Amelia Taylor-Hochberg
Out of sight, out of mind—we can't see the satellites in our atmosphere, continuously recording data about life on Earth, but for a limited time, we can hear them. This special pavilion from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory tracks 20 different satellites overhead, and creates a "soundscape" to map their movements.
