What will historic preservation in Los Angeles look like over the next forty years? What’s the Conservancy’s role in addressing critical urban issues like density and housing? Who decides what to save?
As we celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the Los Angeles Conservancy's founding, we're looking to the future and asking questions about preservation in Los Angeles.
Our esteemed panelists (see below) will explore these questions and more as we discuss the role preservation will play in Los Angeles' future.
Join us at the Los Angeles Central Library (whose proposed demolition led to the Conservancy's formation) on Thursday, April 5 for this invigorating panel discussion.
Moderated by Larry Mantle, host of KPCC's AirTalk and a fourth-generation Angeleno, the panel includes:
- Christopher Hawthorne, newly appointed chief design officer, City of Los Angeles; former architecture critic, Los Angeles Times
- Margaret Bach, founding president, Los Angeles Conservancy
- Luis Hoyos, architect and urban designer, former Conservancy board member, professor of architecture at the Cal Poly Pomona College of Environmental Design, and member of the national Advisory Council on Historic Preservation
- Michelle Magalong, executive director, Asian & Pacific Islander Americans in Historic Preservation
- Mitch O'Farrell, Los Angeles City Councilmember, 13th District
Reservations are $20 for Conservancy members, $25 for the general public.
