ON THE MAP 2012:
Grand Park Night Tour, with DeLAB
On The Map: Supercession
Supercession is the evolutionary redevelopment of projects and sites within the mature city, considered as a form of historical drama. Urban architecture exists rarely as a terminal and definite resolution; but rather as a temporary prospect within a continuum of possibilities.
On the Map 2012: Supercession features several new and recent projects that have a provocative relationship with existing or previous land uses. Sessions will be staged not simply as a monologue by the designer, but as a dialog about the work in relation to its context.
In Partnership with DeLab, The Los Angeles Forum invites you for a special tour to Grand Park, the last event in our On The Map 2012 Supercession series. Since its grand opening on this month, Grand Park has made quite a splash in LA quickly becoming our city’s official backyard. This is your chance to explore LA’s newest urban oasis. Tony Paradowski of Rios Clementi Hale Studios will be on hand to give us the guided tour and the inside story on how this amazing park came to be.
The tour is at 7:00pm to 8:30pm at Downtown LA, 210 N. Grand Avenue, LA, CA 90012
All lectures are free for LA Forum members, $5 for students & $10 for non-members. To pre-purchase tickets Click Here . Tickets are also available on the site.
