The Future of Architecture in L.A., and the Politics of Food

Next American City and Planetizen

Next American City and Planetizen are co-presenting two live events this week in Los Angeles.

First is an evening of discussion about architecture in L.A. with two of the most noted architecture critics in the city. Christopher Hawthorne of the Los Angeles Times and Sam Lubell of the Architect's Newspaper will be discussing architecture in L.A. with Next American City Editor in Chief Diana Lind on Wednesday, October 29, at the A+D Museum in L.A.

Admission for non-subscribers is $15 in advance or $20 at the door and includes a free one-year subscription to Next American City, and entry to all NAC events & free food/drink. RSVP and subscribe at

Wednesday, October 29, 7pm

Plus, join Next American City at Farmlab for lunch and the first talk in our URBANEXUS lecture series, featuring Mark Vallianatos, co-author of The Next Los Angeles: the struggle for a livable city. The lecture will focus on Los Angeles' politicized food landscape-from the city's agricultural heritage, food justice and the fast-food ban, to the future of food in a city transformed by immigration and global trade.

Admission is free and includes lunch provided by Farmlab and a special politics of food exhibit, as well as a performance by Chris Hachadourian and Poorang Nori. Find directions and RSVP for the event at
