Historic Filipinotown, located between Echo Park and Koreatown, may get its own design district. The community is mixed about the idea. Activists say it will lead to gentrification, but some residents want to see the area become more pedestrian friendly.
This week, you can: see designers pay tribute to modernist master R.M. Schindler, watch Cathy Opie’s film about an architecture-loving arsonist, bid farewell to Echo Park experimental art space Machine Project, see the work of Israel’s intergalactic sculptor Ezra Orion, and hear from the landscape architect remaking Pershing Square.
