He also discusses an unbuilt design for a Boys and Girls club facility in Boyle Heights, where the morphology of the existing building influenced the design.

Margaret Griffin of Griffin Enright presents recent built, proposed and conceptual work. She begins with a discussion of their methodology. Griffin discusses her interest in “groundform,” the relationship of architecture to movement, and strategies for achieving working successfully within site and budgetary constraints.
Griffin continues her lecture with a presentation of
several residential projects. She describes her goal as invigorating the residential context. She discusses site constraints and strategies to expand the impression of volume within a small plot and minimal footprint. She discusses exploiting the interface between view and programmatic organization to intensify movement through the architecture. She illustrates this with projects that frame different views, draw visitors through the space, and connect the interior and exterior.
