Culver City's Center for Land Use Interpretation Focuses on On-Site Trailers

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.

Personally, I think this is genius -- deadpan and rich. Reminds me of Ed Ruscha's books from the 1960s like Twentysix Gasoline Stations or Some Los Angeles Apartments.
