The work of architect Eric Owen Moss will be featured in a program on Sat. Aug. 18 highlighting Culver City’s Hayden Tract.
The Society of Architectural Historians/Southern California Chapter will host a presentation, panel discussion and walking tour of the area.
According to a release by SAH/SCCC, by 2003, the Hayden Tract had generated 8,500 new jobs, and occupancy in the area rose from 20 to nearly 85 percent.
Part of that success is attributed to developers Frederick and Laurie Samitaur-Smith who will participate in the panel discussion on Aug. 18. The pair hired Moss in 1986 to help revitalize the former dilapidated industrial area into a thriving creative community into what today is known as “Conjunctive Points.”
In 2001, Moss received the American Institute of Architects/Los Angeles Gold Medal and in 2003 the Urban Land Institute recognized “Conjunctive Points” for its ability to stimulate growth in Culver City.
The Aug. 18 self-conducted walking tour of the area will take in over 20 buildings and art installation followed by light refreshments.
Tickets: $29 for SAH/SCC members. Non-members: $55. Advance tickets are required and can be ordered by clicking here.
