TO LIVE AND DESIGN IN DTLA
Moderator: Carlo Caccavale, Associate Director, AIA Los Angeles
Panelists: Lawrence Azerrad, Erin Besler & Ian Besler, Loryn Napala & Monica Opaskar, Spencer Nikosey and Danielle Rago

With artists and designers at the forefront, Downtown Los Angeles has surged as an international cultural hub accelerated by major museum openings to galleries from New York and London establishing outposts across the city’s burgeoning Arts District. Examining the allure of DTLA among artists and designers, and how a new wave of creatives is leading the charge, emerging architecture and design practitioners Erin and Ian Besler of Besler & Sons, Lawrence Azerrad of LAD Design, Loryn Napala and Monica Opaskar of Untitled Mondays and Spencer Nikosey of KILLSPENCER, along with A+D>Architecture and Design Museum’s COME IN! DTLA Curator Danielle Rago and AIA Los Angeles‘ Carlo Caccavale engage in a conversation exploring the DTLA influence on traditional forms of architecture, art and design, and the allure it offers a younger generation activating derelict downtown structures into exciting, immersive live/work art spaces.

The keynote previews A+D Museum’s new exhibition Come In! DTLA opening March 24 at the Museum’s new downtown Arts District location. For more info, log on at aplusd.org.
