URBANEXUS: great minds meet great cities is NAC’s new national event series…coming soon to a city near you. The series, designed to bring people, cities, ideas and discussion national dialogue about the future of cities, takes stories and ideas from the pages of the magazine directly to the communities involved.


OCT 29, 7PM: Join Next American City at the A+D Museum for our URBANEXUS salon on L.A.’s architecture. Sit down with NAC’s editor in chief Diana Lind, Chris Hawthorne, architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times and Sam Lubell, editor of The Architect’s Newspaper for food, drink and a salon-style discussion about the future of the built environment in of Los Angeles.

OCT 31, 12PM: Join at Farmlab for lunch and the first talk in our URBANEXUS lecture series, featuring Mark Vallianatos, co-author of “The Next Los Angeles: the struggle for a livable city”. The lecture will focus on Los Angeles’ politicized food landscape—from the city’s agricultural heritage, food justice and the fast-food ban, to the future of food in a city transformed by immigration and global trade.

The URBANEXUS webpages go live in just a few days with complete event schedule, directions, speaker bios and more at
