About Extreme IDEAS

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design (A.UD) will carry the narrative of modern architecture in L.A. forward from its influential past to the future with Extreme IDEAS: Architecture at the Intersection, a series of programs that chart a dynamic new future for architecture. The programs will look beyond the field's traditional boundaries and explore topics arising from unexpected quarters—film, automotive, aerospace, and tech industries—in order to explore rapidly emerging new technologies, possibilities for interdisciplinary growth, and the role of Los Angeles in the evolution of architecture. Major support for Extreme IDEAS has been provided by the Getty Foundation.

About Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A.
Extreme IDEAS: Architecture at the Intersection is part of Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. This collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together several local arts institutions for a wide-ranging look at the postwar built environment of the city as a whole, from its famous residential architecture to its vast freeway network, revealing the city's development and ongoing impact in new ways.

About UCLA Architecture and Urban Design (A.UD)
UCLA Architecture and Urban Design, part of UCLA's School of the Arts and Architecture, pursues issues confronting contemporary architecture and urbanism through its Bachelor of Arts program and its four advanced degree programs: the M.Arch. I, M.Arch. II, M.A. in Architecture, and Ph.D. in Architecture. The programs' primary focus on advanced design is complemented by concentrations in technology and critical studies of architectural culture.
