On Wednesday, Oct. 29, nearly 50 guests attended the salon at the A+D Museum to discuss the challenges of developing built environment in LA. Our guests – Christopher Hawthorne of the Los Angeles Times and Sam Lubell of The Architect’s Newspaper – shared their own perspectives as guests questioned the pros and cons of architecture in their own neighborhoods.

On Friday, Oct. 31, Next American City hosted “Politics of Food,” a conversation on food in Los Angeles with our guest lecturer, Occidental College’s Mark Vallianatos. Over 100 guests enjoyed a full spread of locally grown entrees, courtesy of Farmlab, as guests discussed several food controversies including the availability of fresh produce in area neighborhoods, the change of diet in school lunches and the recent fast food ban.
