Friday – The American Institute of Architects hosts the 4th of five forums with candidates for Mayor in 2013.  The first three chats have proven informative about how the candidates see the present and future of the built environment in L.A.  This week’s guest, Wendy Greuel has a high bar to clear.  As former chair of the City Council Transportation Committee, she is expected to already be a master of urban planning and design issues.  Get all the details, here.
