Emerging Professionals Mixer

AIA/LA is sponsoring an “Emerging Professionals Mixer” this Wednesday, August 5 from 6-9pm in downtown Los Angeles. This is a great opportunity for UCLA Extension Arc_ID students to network!

AIA BottleRock

From their email invite:
1050 Flower Street, #167
Los Angeles, CA 90015
(entrance on 11th between Hope St & Flower St – 2 blocks from the Staples Center)

“BottleRock will truly be inviting guests to rock out with their cork out, which has always been our mantra,” comments BottleRock Downtown LA General Manager and Wine Director George Skorka. With over 4,000 square-feet of space designed by Ernie Roth of Roth Interiors, BottleRock Downtown LA is interwoven with organic elements such as green tones, tree trunk tables, and counter tops embedded with recycled wine and beer bottles. Housed inside the gorgeous new Metropolitan Lofts on 11th between Hope and Flower, BottleRock boasts a wine list of close to 1,000 selections, an extensive beer list including a dozen different microbrews on tap, and a full open-air kitchen manned by Executive Chef Jared Levy.

This event is free and open to both AIA Members and Non-Members.

This is a no-host bar but please RSVP in advance so that the venue may plan accordingly.

Fall classes: Electives, Seminars and Tours.

UCLA Extension Arc_ID would like to present you with a few of our many class offerings for fall quarter. First of all, we announced previously that we have a new class: SB1608 Disabled Access Seminar for Architects!  Taught by Nate Wittasek, this one-day seminar fulfills the mandatory continuing education requirements for architects.

We are also offering several fun One-Day Lectures & Courses. These include Feng Shui  with Simona Mainini, The Role of the Royal Mistress in the Design of Great French Palaces with Eleanor Schapa, an Introduction to Oriental Carpets with Chris Fager, and Creating Warmth and Drama in the Home with Light taught by Kathy Pryzgoda.

Finally there are several architectural development and home design classes being offered. These are great for those with more specific design interests, and can also be used to satisfy elective credits for students in our program. These include courses such as, Residential Remodeling with Paul Bially, Furniture Design with Patrick Alt, Kitchen Design with Donald Silvers, and Photographing Architecture and Interiors (online) with Douglas Hill. (Please note that some of these courses may have prerequisites)

Please pick up a course catalog or go to our online registration page to see a full list of the full-length courses and program offerings we have available! You can also click on any of the class titles above to be redirected to their registration pages. We look forward to having you join us.

From the Duvivier Architects website:
“This house is certified LEED Platinum, the highest environmental rating in the US, the ultimate in green architecture. The house is oriented to the south, has a three story cooling tower, and a living green wall. It has efficient windows, water heater and appliances. It features a storm water percolation pit and has a greywater system awaiting final City approval.”

A piece on the home was also published in the Eco-Home Journal and you can read the text here
