The IDEAS Lecture Series charts a dynamic new future for architecture by engaging speakers from a broad range of disciplines. The series looks beyond the field's traditional boundaries and explores topics arising from unexpected quarters--entertainment, 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.
The IDEAS Lecture Series is generously supported by Paul and Herta Amir.
