NEW LOCAL/GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURES
The SAH 2016 Annual International Conference will engage participants from around the world with the rich, evolving legacy of the Pasadena/Los Angeles region’s built environment. With the scheduled completion of the Metro Expo Light-Rail Line west to Santa Monica in early 2016, Pasadena will be connected to Downtown LA and the rest of Los Angeles County. This infrastructure, building on historic right-of-ways, will provide new ways to see the broad range of the region’s architecture and urbanism.
Featured speakers include UCLA professors Eric Avila, specialist in racial identity, urban space, and cultural representation, and Dana Cuff, author of Architecture: The Story of Practice, and regional paper sessions including “Los Angeles Infrastucture: Design, Aesthetics, Publics,” “Styles, Revival Styles, California Styles,” and “Reappraising California Counterculture.”
The SAH Los Angeles Seminar will bring together constituencies of historic conservation, design professionals, and the community at large to examine SurveyLA/HistoricPlacesLA (the online comprehensive citywide historic resource developed by the City of Los Angeles together with the Getty Conservation Institute) and contemplate its local/global implications and possibilities.
Conference Chair: Ken Tadashi Oshima, SAH 1st Vice President, University of Washington
Local Co-Chairs: Linda Hart, Independent Scholar and Kevin McMahon, Southern California Institute of Architecture
