In her talk, “How They Learned About L.A.” Emily will explore some of the photographs and photographers that helped bring Southern California architecture to the world’s attention. The bulk of the conversation, however, focuses on her latest book Wayne Thom: Photographing the Late Modern. A key primer to late-twentieth century Modernism, this monograph chronicles Thom’s photographic practice and the architectural and urban environment in which he worked. An innovative chronicler of the booming West Coast urbanism of the 1960s and 70s, Thom’s photographs of key projects by path-breaking architecture firms such as William Pereira & Associates, Edward Durell Stone, SOM, Gio Ponti, John Portman, I. M. Pei, and A. Quincy Jones helped establish the idea of cool architectural glamour of the era.

------------------
Carl Smith, AIA is a licensed architect and general contractor. He received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from California Polytechnic University, Pomona in 1997. Carl was a founding member of Telemachus Studio in 1995, became a partner with William Adams in 2004. Carl has taught design studio at multiple levels at Cal Poly and Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design (LAIAD). Carl is currently co-director at LAIAD where he teaches advanced design and is responsible for development of academic programs and advancement of the school.

"Field Notes" explores Carl’s somewhat unlikely path through education, fabrication, building, and into an architectural career. We’ll look at how early influences affect the work of the school and a small vibrant architectural practice with a wide variety of projects and close relationship to construction and field work.

Sometimes projects are meaningful beyond their scope or scale. This is one of those… nice to see this beautiful remodel come out of the ground and fit into the landscape all at once. First of our desert projects. This one with @tealehathewayart and @marshallvanderhoof -

Preview of our Santa Monica Residence: 40’ from floor to ceiling, looking at the guest house in the back yard. This was a great client to work with… she wanted a “dramatic” volume in the middle of the house. Check.

When some other architect is all up in your grill. At least it a good one, @eyrcarchitects. It’s going to be a good-looking neighborhood when we’re done. -

Vanity cabinet by Telemachus Fabrication… we have done about 50 of these in various finishes. Single drawer face with Integrated aluminum pull and interior roll-out. Part of our on-going efforts to allow design and customization with control costs.

This one is personal. My Mother’s retirement home coming together. Projects that allow you to do what you want are always tricky… tried to weave in some of my mother’s personality and desire for nostalgia into the place. -
