Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles presents Wet Horizons, an installation and exhibition by Medellin architect Luis Callejas / LCLA OFFICE in the Neutra VDL Research House.
Located in the existing context of the Neutra-designed penthouse—complete with glazed walls, rooftop reflecting pools, and views of the Silver Lake Reservoir—Wet Horizons, articulates environmental connections between Callejas’ practice and the architecture of the house itself. Veiled textile drawings, re-inserted into the domestic space of the house, were created in collaboration with textile artist Charlotte Hansson. Combined with digital projections and models, the installation merges the reading of landscapes from distant geographies with real L.A. views, as already curated by Neutra’s design.
