Walking Places: A walk in East L.A. with Sesshu Foster

A walk in East L.A. with Ken Erhlich and Sesshu Foster.
Join us for a series of four walks in different parts of the city that will examine the architectural landscape of the city up close. Each walk will be less a tour than a framed experience of a part of the city, a series of playful, absurd, critical and activity-based walks that will reveal Los Angeles as a space of ghosts, projections, limits and possibilities. Rather than a narration of architectural history, we will re-consider the built environment and highlight ignored, forgotten, overlooked and “ordinary” spaces. Topics of discussion will include the relationship between plan and use: namely, the way that architecture and urban planning produce a set of contradictions between the way space is designed and the way it is used.
