This week: see into the future of mobility; learn how new housing laws will impact LA; discuss the intersection of art, engineering and architecture; attend a screening of LA-themed short films; and walk through Pasadena’s architecturally-rich Madison Heights neighborhood.
If enough homeowners build newly legal backyard homes, or accessory dwelling units, they could make a significant dent in the region’s housing needs, while building equity for themselves. Is this a win-win proposition, and a venue for design ingenuity? Or do a web of constraints make ADU construction difficult and costly?
Catch zodiac-inspired ball gowns at A+D Museum; watch a long overdue film about John Parkinson; hear from Black Panther graphic designer Emory Douglas and see his work at LACE; check out structural visions by SOM at MAK Center; and find out how people in Inglewood feel about the changes coming their way.
