Spring Break in LA


As part of the EDW workshop, the whole class got to spend spring break in LA. While there, we got to see a great many architectural sites, including: the Charles and Ray Eames House, the offices of CTEK, Frank Gehry's office and the unfinished Disney Concert Hall, an exhibit on Schindler at the LA County Museum, the campuses of SCIARC ("I swear it's down this road...") and UC Irvine, the houses of Richard Neutra, Eric Owen Moss-land, the monastery at San Juan Capistrano, and the Salk Institute in La Jolla. All of that in just four days. Hardcore.

As if that weren't enough, some of us were lucky enough to sleep outdoors at some lovely beachfront campsites. "You sleep in the out-of-doors? Yes. Fascinating." (Peter seemed shocked that anyone would sleep outside, and somehow not get eaten by wolves.) Add to that outdoor showers in very cold winds, the best dive bar ever, and the company of good friends and good beer, and it was a hell of a trip.

We did not, however, make it to Tipo's Tacos. Sorry Mark.
