The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Over the course of the last couple of months, the Culver City Cultural Affairs Foundation has presented a series of 'architectureTALKS' -- that have shined the spotlight on some of the internationally renowned architects based in Culver City.
Next up is a talk this Sunday from 2 to 4 pm with Kulapat Yantrasast, founding partner and creative director of wHY, "one of Los Angeles’ most in‐demand architecture and design firms," located in Culver City. The firm is responsible for Pomona College’s new Studio Art Hall (see image above), the Samurai exhibition at LACMA, and Project 120 in Chicago as well as other local, national and international projects. The image below is from a Venice Beach House the firm designed in 2012.
The venue of the talk is wHY headquarters, at 9520 Jefferson Blvd. (between Duquesne and Hetzler Rd.) Tickets are $35. And all proceeds from ticket sales will benefit technical enhancements (lighting, sound, and projection equipment) for the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, with the intent of increasing public performances and film screenings at that venue.
Yantrasast will talk to Aujero Small, architectural writer and Culver City Cultural Affairs Commissioner, about “how wHY enriches projects through design conversations” and “establishes new ideas through four workshops – buildings, grounds, objects and ideas; measuring success through impact on the environment; adaptability; and usability rather than a specific style or image.”
