An Interview With SCI-Arc Director Eric Owen Moss

The LA Downtown News interviews the director fo the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Eric Owen Moss, on how the school fits into its new location in Downtown L.A.

"One thing about Eric Owen Moss: The man can talk. Give him a chance and he goes on and on, sometimes answering what he is asked, and often not. Like many politicians and some creative types, he seems fascinated by his own ideas, by his solutions to problems and his role in finding the answers. During an interview with the Los Angeles Downtown News, while discussing how the Southern California Institute or Architecture (SCI-Arc), where Moss works part-time as director, sends students around the globe to study, he says, 'There are places all over the world that are very interested in that exchange. I participate in that, although I would be talking probably anyway because I can't shut up.' "
