Join California Historical Society at the Gensler, Los Angeles office, for a stirring panel discussion about how participatory design impacts the creation of the built environment in Los Angeles and beyond. Inspired by Lawrence Halprin’s creative public participation methods, presenters and participants will consider how public participation does, could, and should impact current projects in Los Angeles.
To start the event, and to interject public participation into the program, guests will be asked when they arrive to pose questions related to the theme of the night. Those questions will be incorporated into the panel discussion. Speakers will be provided 2-3 minutes to introduce themselves, their organization, and their work with five slides and then the panel discussion will begin.
Guest speakers include a diverse array of architects, designers, planners, and architectural historians. Alison Bick Hirsch, Assistant Professor at the USC School of Architecture and author of City Choreographer: Lawrence Halprin in Urban Renewal America will moderate the discussion.
