The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
As part of the Pacific Standard Time's celebration of Los Angeles' heritage of modern architecture, the Center for Land Use Interpretation has taken over downtown Culver City's Parcel B to present its paean to on-site trailers. Quoth the Center: "Ubiquitous but often unseen, the construction office trailer is a type of invisible architecture that precedes and enables the construction of the more permanent buildings that make up Los Angeles. CLUI will present an exhibition of original photography within a construction trailer, along with tours of these structures at high-profile construction and engineering sites around Los Angeles."
The exhibit's website has five examples of the phenomena. At least three of them -- and possibly all of them -- are from around Culver City. The Center for Land Use Interpretation itself is a block away at 9331 Venice Blvd.
Tickets also now on sale for a bus tour associated with the upcoming Center for Land Use Interpretation program. The tour will take place on two separate occasions, May 24 and June 7 and will last from 10am to 4pm, on a bus departing from Culver City. Led by the Center for Land Use Interpretation, the tour will visit various construction projects around the city of Los Angeles, and their respective on-site office trailers. Hard hats and high visibility vests will be provided, as necessary. The price of the tour is $20 per person.
