The Next L. A. Pamela Burton William Fain Et Al

This event did not take place at SCI-Arc. Aaron Betsky is introduced as the moderator of a panel on public space in Los Angeles. He begins by detailing his objections to many of the assumptions contained in the phrase “public space. He introduces the other panelists: Pamela Burton, Brenda Funches, William Fain, and Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe. Pamela Burton proposes attention to psychological aspects of open space as the most appropriate response to contemporary cycles of natural disasters and social conflict. Brenda Funches describes how L.A. Harvest develops community gardens in vacant lots to encourage healthy eating, reconnect urban populations with nature, and create public spaces that are safe. William Fain argues that, contrary to the received wisdom, Los Angeles has a tradition of significant public space. He discusses the possibility of landscaping rail corridors as usable public spaces throughout the city. Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe analyses the unique qualities of Los Angeles, especially its light, and its impact on art made there. He notes that the experience most people have of Los Angeles is complicated by the ubiquity of representations in the movies.

Jeremy Gilbert Rolfe

Jeremy Gilbert Rolfe discusses intersections. He makes an analogy between postmodernism and the fluid flow of movement on the freeway. He compares the work of Frank Gehry’s Loyola Law School and Mies van der Rohe’s modernist grid, citing differences in organization and circulation. Rolfe explains that the sign of the intersection is a reaction of the discipline of architecture to its own history as an art form, specifically the poetics of construction. He states that the language of building must change in order to serve a building’s presentation rather than its construction and essence.
