TALK: LA Design Festival Keynote - Brooks + Scarpa

  • ROW DTLA 777 Alameda Street Los Angeles United States (map)

Why do we remember buildings, locations and experiences? Even a place visited in our childhood can conjure emotions that make an impact on us through the memories they create. Angela Brooks + Lawrence Scarpa will explain the creative process that aspires to make a lasting impression out of even a brief encounter. 

Angela Brooks and Lawrence Scarpa have garnered international acclaim for the creative use of conventional materials in unique and unexpected ways. They are also considered pioneers and leaders in the field of sustainable design. They are the recipient of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Award in Architecture and was also awarded the State of California and National American Institute of Architects Architecture Firm Award. Over the last ten years, Brooks + Scarpa has received more than one hundred major design awards, including 22 National AIA Awards, Record Houses, Record Interiors, the Rudy Bruner Prize, five AIA Committee on the Environment “Top Ten Green Building” Awards and the World Habitat Award, one of ten firms selected worldwide. They have also received the lifetime achievement awards from Interior Design Magazine and the AIA California Council.
