As the summer season comes to a close, wondering what architecture and design events are happening around Los Angeles this week? Bustler compiled a snappy list of event recommendations that we think are worth checking out. This week's picks include: AIA|LA's 2028 Olympics and Paralympics discussion panel; Doug Jackson's “SOUPERgreen SPREADS!” exhibition at the USC School of Architecture; and “Déja Vu”, the first solo museum exhibition of lifestyle brand 69 at the MOCA Pacific Design Center.
Read on for our latest weekly event recommendations.
This panel will explore previous examples of visual identity design for the Olympics, how LA 2028 might be different, how designers and artists could be enlisted for citywide supergraphic interventions and how local community groups could create their own installations and streetscapes to make LA’s hundreds of neighborhoods feel like they’re part of the action.
Architect Doug Jackson's “SOUPERgreen SPREADS!” exhibition features selected spreads from the SOUPERgreen! book and demonstrates its orchestration of architectural design and representation, discourse, graphic design, and typography into a coherent visual and discursive argument—one that graphically reinforces the exuberance, dynamism, and dramatic spectacle of the “souped up” green architecture for which it advocates.
Lifestyle brand 69 is the brainchild of an anonymous Los Angeles–based designer whose non-gender and non-demographic-specific clothing exuberantly suggests ideas of freedom, inclusivity, and a more fluid future. For its first museum solo exhibition, 69 presents a survey of its groundbreaking clothing along with a selection of irreverent and inventive videos and photographs that blur the line between promotional material and artwork.
