Are you interested in joining an online club of architects? If so, check out Architizer.com, a four-month old web site is that serves as a free virtual nexus for architects, clients, critics and fans of contemporary architecture. Better yet, get offline and meet the web creators and LA architects participating in Architizer at a launch party for the site, taking place tonight at 6:30PM at the new home of A+D Museum at 6032 Wilshire Boulevard.
Examples of West Coast projects on Architizer will be displayed and computer terminals will be on hand to provide guests with a first-hand experience. Ice cream sandwiches by Coolhaus, the architect-owned and operated ice cream truck, will be available outside the party on Wilshire Boulevard. Los Angeles firms already online include Escher GuneWardena Architiecture, Greg Lynn FORM, Michael Maltzan Architecture, NMDA – Neil Denari Architects, P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S and Richard Meier & Partners LLP among others.
