L.A. in Wien / Wien in L.A., an exhibition in SCI-Arc

The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) is pleased to present L.A. in Wien / Wien in L.A, an exhibition featuring works by Hitoshi Abe, Peter Cook, Zaha Hadid, Thom Mayne, and Eric Owen Moss juxtaposed with those by R.M. Schindler and Richard Neutra that investigate the architecture of both Los Angeles and Vienna and their respective influences on one another over the last century. L.A. in Wien / Wien in L.A. is on view July 24 through September 13 at the SCI-Arc Library Gallery, 960 E. 3rd Street, 2nd Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90013.

The L.A. in Wien/Wien in L.A exhibition begins with a digital presentation of photographs and drawings, entitled Schindler/Neutra: Vienna/Los Angeles 2.0, offering a brief overview tracing the architectural link between the cities when Vienna-born architects R.M. Schindler and Richard Neutra first settled in Los Angeles. The overview highlights their respective architectural innovations, while exploring the questions: What do architects from Vienna bring to Los Angeles (and vice-versa), and conversely, how does Los Angeles influence their work?

L.A. in Wien/Wien in L.A continues with an in-depth study of five invited entries from the competition held in fall 2008 by the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Seminal L.A.-based and international architects- Zaha Hadid Architects (Hamburg, Germany/London), Atelier Hitoshi Abe (Sendai, Japan/Los Angeles), Eric Owen Moss Architects (Los Angeles), Thom Mayne/Morphosis Architects (New York/Los Angeles) and Peter Cook, Archigram/CRABstudio Architects (London)- offered their solutions to integrate campus and urban life in Vienna, while also complementing the given Master Plan designed by BUSarchitektur. Through drawings and renderings, the exhibition presents each architect’s detailed approach to infrastructure and urban planning.

Admission is free. Seating is first come, first served. Events are broadcast live online at http://www.sciarc.edu/live/
