xs XS: extra small Excess
Please join the LA Forum for our 2007 On The Map series. This summer the LA Forum’s “On The Map” series draws from the spirit of excess celebrating the obsessive spirit of the small project, and maps a momentary constellation of Los Angeles projects that speak to larger aspirations than size. This work, although not immediately traceable to the conventional virtues of practicality and economy, reveals an intense and considered labor of energy and devotion to the design process and its life beyond completion, making a big impact through small scale interventions.
