This Weekend in Los Angeles

The rest of the week is going to be a busy one. I wouldn't normally try to pack two events into one evening, but tomorrow, from 4-8pm, I'm stopping by B&B Italia for the opening of Burton Machen's 'Urban Evolution'. Then at 7pm, I'm headed just a few blocks away to meet with the Designer's Networking Group. Herzog Wine Cellars and Design Hardware & Hardwood Flooring join together to host this month's DNG.




The two big events of the weekend are Dwell on Design and CA Boom. Check out their websites for a schedule of events and ticket info.

Trade day for Dwell on Design is Friday, and your free pass will get you in for the whole weekend (excluding special events). Don't miss mid-century architect, William Krisel, relish in the much deserved spotlight at Friday night's soiree.

CA Boom is going to be held in the old Beverly Hills Robinson's May department store, which I believe was threatened to be demolished, but I guess, at least for this weekend, it is getting a new lease on life! Mod Com (The Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee) is sponsoring an installation of Julius Shulman's work (the 98-year-old infamous architectural photographer) and Alan Lieb, chairman of the committee, will be there on Sunday at 3pm to speak about 'Saving Civic Modernism'

If only I could be in two places at once, I would love to go to this event too! Check out the Neutra exhibit at the LAPL. At 3pm on Sunday, the ALOUD lecture series presents "Hollywood and Uncle Sam: Richard Neutra and the Great Depression", hosted by exhibition curator, Thomas S. Hines.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
