Natural Histories for Los Angeles Presents “Wet Horizons”

An installation and exhibition by Luis Callejas / LCLA office 
Exhibition Opening: October 11, 7—10 pm 
October 11—November 23, 2014
Neutra VDL Research House, Los Angeles, CA 

Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles presents Wet Horizons, an installation and exhibition by architect Luis Callejas / LCLA OFFICE in the Neutra VDL Research House. Located in the existing context of the Neutra-designed penthouse—its glazed walls, rooftop reflecting pools, and views of the Silver Lake Reservoir, Wet Horizons articulates environmental connections between Callejas’s landscape and architecture practice and the architecture of the house itself. Veiled textile drawings, re-inserted into the domestic space of the house, were created in collaboration with textile artist Charlotte Hansson. Combined with digital projections and models, the installation merges the reading of landscapes from distant geographies with actual views of Los Angeles.

Exhibition design: LCLA OFFICE + WE ARE YOUNG ARCHITECTS (Daniel Rauchwerger and Noam Dvir)Textile Artist: Charlotte Hansson

Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles, is a World Wide Storefront participant, is a collaboration between Big City Forum, Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design, and the Neutra VDL Research House. Wet Horizons and Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles are part of World Wide Storefront, a Storefront for Art and Architecture project. Additional support is provided by Harvard Graduate School of Design, Bestor Architecture, and AECOM.
