ForumFest 2015: Bridge. Tunnel. Channel. parties on, under, and along the L.A. River's infrastructure. Come celebrate the final days of the Sixth Street Viaduct and support the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design. Join us in the Sixth Street Bridge tunnel for a carnival mood and festivities that include DJs, live music, food and trucks. Artistic and musical surprises in store. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/forumfest-2015-bridge-tunnel-channel-tickets-18914459658 This year’s ForumFest honors the Los Angeles River. We applaud the concrete channel as an important catalyst for change in the city and recognize the efforts of designers, activists, citizens, and politicians in reimagining this singular piece of infrastructure. On view will be temporary installations by architects and designers featured in the Forum’s 2015 Out There Doing It series including, Typical Office (Duygun Inal and Ben Warwas), LA-BOR (Jia Gu and Jonathan Crisman), and PAR (Jennifer Marmon). Jai & Jai (Jomjai and Jaitip Srisomburananont) will present a curated series of video works by Chris Gassaway, Devin Gharakhanian, Nick Korody, Juanito Olivarria, Tomas Koolhaas, Akiko Yamashita, and art by Mike Nesbit. Supporting the LA Forum means supporting architecture and urban design in an evolving city. ForumFest tickets and sponsorships underwrite our innovative programing: exhibitions, events, and publications. The Forum’s recent newsletter documented expressive (and at times challenging) Brutalist architecture in Los Angeles and found an unsung urban vernacular in the process. In appreciating the channel that cuts a swath from the Valley to Long Beach we find beauty in the hard and soft details of this singular landscape. The Sixth Street Viaduct will be torn down weeks after our event to make room for Michael Maltzan Architecture’s new bridge. ForumFest is a celebration of the future of the river and a wake for its current form. Come party in the tunnel under the bridge before it is demolished.
