Dingbat 2.0 Lecture March 26th at 2pm

Saturday March 26th at 2pm
Santa Monica Public Library, Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium

 

Panelists, including editors Thurman Grant and Joshua G. Stein, architectural historian Steven Treffers, and architect Barbara Bestor discuss the many aspects of dingbat architecture and ways in which the apartment building type – synonymous with LA’s rapid post-war urban expansion – might be re-envisioned for the 21st century. Often dismissed as ugly and mundane, dingbats are nevertheless rare examples of consistency in typologic design and provide a wealth of opportunities to consider urban housing today. Cohosted by the Society of Architectural Historians Southern California Chapter.
