Walking Places: A walk in Venice with Erin Schnieder
Sunday, June 9, 2013 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM (PDT)
6/9 – A walk in Venice with Erin Schnieder
Join us for a series of four playful, absurd, critical and activity-based walks in different parts of the city that will examine the architectural landscape up close and reveal Los Angeles as a space of ghosts, projections, limits and possibilities. Led by Ken Ehrlich and an invited collaborator, each walk will present a framed experience of a part of the city, rather than a narration or tour 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.
