Luna Outdoor Furniture Collection

Thanks to the hottest new brand of outdoor furniture, Yardbird, you will have a chance to bid on three sets of its Luna furniture at the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center's Modernism Week party, Kaptur The Moment, on February 23. More info on Yardbird and Luna: https://yardbird.com/collections/luna-collection More info on the party, food, music and home tours here. https://www.psmuseum.org/…/719-adc-fundraiser-cocktail-part…

Taking inspiration from our West Coast friends, the Luna Collection is a personal favorite at Yardbird. Its hard to beat a rust-free aluminum frame and Sunbrella fabric at this price. This set will last for years with little to no maintenance. Our most affordable set!

Christopher Hawthorne Lecture: January 24, 2019 Annenberg Theater 6pm

“Unfinished City: The (Contentious) Rise of the Third Los Angeles.”

Christopher Hawthorne was appointed last year by Mayor Eric Garcetti as the first Chief Design Officer for the city of Los Angeles after nearly 14 years as the architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times. He will discuss the work he is doing in this new role as well as offering a broader analysis of the evolution of architecture and urbanism in Southern California since 2000.

About Christopher Hawthorne - He is the Chief Design Officer for the city of Los Angeles, appointed by Mayor Eric Garcetti. Prior to joining City Hall, Hawthorne was architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times from 2004 to March 2018. With Alanna Stang, he is the author of "The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture" (Princeton Architectural Press). His writing has also appeared in the New York Times, the New Yorker, Slate, Architectural Record, Architecture, Harvard Design Magazine and many other publications. He is professor of the practice at Occidental College, where since 2015 he has directed the Third Los Angeles Project, a series of public conversations about architecture, urban planning, mobility and demographic change in Southern California. Hawthorne has also taught at U.C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University and the Southern California Institute of Architecture. A frequent collaborator with KCET-TV in Los Angeles, he wrote and directed the hour-long documentary "That Far Corner: Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Angeles," which had its broadcast debut earlier this year, and received an L.A.-area Emmy Award for the 2016 KCET program "Third L.A. with Architecture Critic Christopher Hawthorne." His other professional honors include a mid-career fellowship from the National Arts Journalism Program at Columbia University, the Bradford Williams Medal from the American Society of Landscape Architects and a Residency in Criticism at the American Academy in Rome. Hawthorne grew up in Berkeley, California and holds a bachelor's degree from Yale, where he studied political science and architectural history.

On January 24, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at the Palm Springs Art Museum's Annenberg Theater, ADC welcomes Christopher Hawthorne, the Chief Design Officer for the City of Los Angeles. Mayor Eric Garcetti chose Hawthorne for this newly created position in March of 2018 to help improve the quality of civic architecture and urban design. A leading voice in the design world, Hawthorne previously served as the architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times since 2004. Join us to learn about his vision, successes, and challenges of his first year leading this important civic position. This event is free and open to the public.

ADC thanks our 2018-19 Lecture Series sponsors; Thomas C. Given and Jeffrey Wright.
