Architects today co-conspire with a host of key figures in a fluid exchange of imagination spanning from pre-design to post-occupancy. Whether privately volleyed or publicly launched, these dynamic, ad-hoc, and non-linear exchanges provide the fuel that drives design and makes innovation possible. Through interrogating and encouraging these conversations, the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design hopes to offer a greater understanding of how architecture is produced, assembled, and disseminated in the contemporary cultural milieu.
