The Architecture Uncensored lecture series aims to discuss the honest realities, taboos, conflicts, controversial issues and inspirations that shape the architectural profession.
WHEN: Wednesday, July 22, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
To kick off the 7th Annual Architecture Uncensored lecture series, AIA|DC’s Emerging Architects Committee invites you to a networking social and keynote lecture with Los Angeles-based architect Leo Marmol, FAIA. Marmol is a co-founding principal of the firm Marmol Radziner, whose innovative design-build practice includes architecture, construction, landscape, interiors, furniture, and a jewelry line.
In his lecture, entitled “Balancing Googie and Google: A Guide for Today’s Emerging Architect,” Marmol will discuss some of his firm’s recent restorations of iconic modern architecture, which include Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House, Rudolf Schindler’s Elliot House, and E. Stewart Williams’ 1961 Santa Fe Federal Savings and Loan building in Palm Springs, California. This lecture will also focus specifically on how young architects have influenced Radziner’s practice, why young architects are crucial to preserving the architectural heritage of the modern movement, and how we can balance a reverence for the past with a curiosity for the future.
