AIA Sponsors Weekly Forums with Leading Candidates for Mayor

First up, Jan Perry.

Starting this Friday, the American Institute of Architects (AIA|LA) begins a weekly forum with the five candidates for Mayor.  Hosting the evenings will be  Los Angeles City Planning Commission President Bill Roschen and Los Angeles Times Architecture Critic Christopher Hawthorne.  The events promise to be one of the first chances each candidate has to outline a vision for how they want Los Angeles’ communities, developments and buildings will look in their Los Angeles.  Leading off the schedule this Friday is City Council Woman Jan Perry.

Some of the topics covered include urban planning, urban design and, of course, architecture as they relate to establishing a healthy, delightful and more economically and environmentally sustainable built environment.  If you’re interested in attending, they do want RSVP’s (even though the event is free).  You can let them know, by clicking here.  For a full calendar of the speakers, click on after the jump.

    Will the next mayor invest in the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan? How will they prioritize reforming the Zoning Code? What’s their opinion about design and building performance?

    WHO WILL BE THE NEXT MAYOR OF LOS ANGELES? YJ Draiman?
    The next Mayoral candidate to address the audience at Holman Mayoral Forum on March 6, 2012, was YJ Draiman. Curiously, prior to last night, he’d received little publicity in the Los Angeles media. But based on his Presentation and the emails I’ve received from him, Draiman campaign for Mayor should be taken seriously.
    He’s an elected member of the Northridge East Neighborhood Council. He’s now working on a Doctorate in Energy Conservation and, as he told the audience last night, he thinks Los Angeles must become exceptionally business friendly – that it must rejuvenate manufacturing, and that to do all this, the City must make full use of its natural resources, (an idea he promises to explain at a later time, elaborating on his vision to make Los Angeles the World Capital for Renewable Energy, Energy efficiency & Water conservation in LA).
    YJ Draiman’s vision for Los Angeles is to make LA the World Capital for Renewable Energy, Energy efficiency & Water conservation.

A Conversation on the Built Environment with Wendy Greuel

|
The fourth event in the AIA’s mayoral candidate series with Wendy Greuel began with a 25 minute delay. Greuel was ensnarled in the city’s notorious traffic on her way from a previous engagement on the westside.  It was an apt precursor to the engaging conversation that followed. The former councilwoman, Dreamworks executive and current city […]
