LACMA: Architects Discuss Design (11.15.09)

In conjunction with the exhibit From the Spoon to the City (which we’ve written about before) LACMA is hosting a panel discussion on the fusion of architecture and design at 7pm. Architects Elena Manferdini and Greg Lynn will participate in a panel discussion led by Frances Anderton, host of KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture (and Dwell’s Los Angeles editor). The group will discuss their design processes and how they translate design concepts and techniques between small and large scales. ($15 – 20)

Thanks to Dwell Magazine for the reminder!
