March 31, 2010 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Eric Avila reviews the development of downtown Los Angeles. He documents the reallocations of resource and capital in the early twentieth century, and the effects of these changes on the city. Avila explains the social and economic implications of the building of Los Angeles’ first City Hall. He discusses the effects of the Great Depression and the Second World War on the growth of the city, noting accelerated suburban decentralization. Avila discusses the spatial context of film noir and its relationship to Los Angeles. Next, Avila reviews the construction of Dodger Stadium and it’s destruction of the surrounding urban context of Chavez Ravine. Avila critiques Mike Davis and Reyner Banham, especially their predictions of how Los Angeles will develop in the future. Avila expresses regret for the erasure of Los Angeles’ noir past, citing the recent re-development of downtown.

Edward Eigen A Crash Course In History

February 13, 2008 | Video Lecturer:

Edward Eigen is an architectural historian and scholar whose work focuses on the intersection of human and natural sciences within architecture in the 19th century. He argues that accidents, rather than disrupting the narrative of history, instead provide a thread which connects before and after, cause and effect. In looking at a particular case of “death by architecture,” the lecture is a primer in how to investigate accidents in the making.
