An exhibit loaded with ideas and architectural ingenuity, A New Sculpturalism sets to inspire us by highlighting the city’s structural heritage and future.
Los Angeles has been a constant canvas for architects such as Richard Neutra and Frank Gehry now and throughout history to build upon. To follow and celebrate Los Angeles’s architectural legacy and future, MOCA and Pacific Standard Time collaborated on A New Sculpturalism at the Geffen Contemporary, on show now through September 9th.
The exhibit explores 38 emerging architectural practices and firms involved in Los Angeles’s modern architecture for the past 25 years. With seasoned and established architects like Gehry and Eric Owen Moss to newcomers like Tom Wiscombe, A NEW SCULPTURISM strives to showcase the innovation and potential of Los Angeles, posing the city as a true center of architectural creativity and intellect.
This collaborative showcase involves not only architectural heavy weights like Thom Mayne, but also numerous renowned foundations and institutions such as the Southern California Institute for Architecture (SCI-Arc), the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California Department of Architecture. This exhibit is possibly the architectural highlight of the year.
