Alternative Architecture Practices

Glen Small hosts a panel discussion of architects who work outside of “mainstream architecture.” Rick Davidson reviews his career trajectory, from Marion Manley’s office in Miami to full-time antiwar activist in Los Angeles. David Greenberg presents a rapid slideshow of images of Los Angeles, from his company, International Environmental Communications, Inc., which sells still and moving image documentation of the Los Angeles urban environment. John Pastier, the first architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times, discusses his path from engineering, to architecture, to participating on the Los Angeles city plan, to six years of journalism. Elsa Leviseur (identified here as “Elsa Fleischmann”) discusses her evolution from architect in South Africa to land preservationist and landscape architect in Southern California. Glen Small briefly discusses his transition from architect to visionary. There is a lively question and answer exchange with the audience, which includes Eric Owen Moss and Bill Simonian.
