Everyone in L.A. always says it’s too hard to develop good housing in the city, but why exactly is that the case? The LA Forum has organized this evening to get a cross-section of the players involved in housing development in L.A. in one room, surrounded by an installation that questions contemporary domesticity in the city, and ask for answers. What are the roadblocks to better housing? What role can you play? How can we work together, with new collaborators and new ideas, to rethink our current condition? You’ve been invited because we think you’re just the sort of person who can make a difference in L.A.’s development—we want to hear what you think! The evening is invitation only, but we plan to take good notes and to produce a report of our findings afterward, so the ideas and discussion can live on and influence the wider community.

Discussion moderated by Brian Lane, AIA, LEED A.P. Principal at Koning Eizenberg.  Please fill out this rsvp / questionnaire by July 15.  
How Small is Too Small? created by Takako Tajima and Katrina Szabo consists of a full-scale micro-unit apartment installation while BY-Right/BY-Design created by Liz Falletta explores the comparison between code-oriented market development and so called high design for multi-family housing in Los Angeles; we are proud to have these two thoughtful exhibitions at our gallery at a time when creative ideas on density ranges, housing affordability and re-zoning are being considered through a modified municipal code.
