To complement the exhibition Overdrive: L.A. Constructs the Future, 1940–1990, the National Building Museum focuses its premiere lecture series, Spotlight on Design, towards the west coast with lectures by Neil M. Denari Architects, Marmol Radziner, and Johnston Marklee. Join for one, or purchase a Spotlight on L.A. Design series ticket.

SoLAD_Denari.jpgArchitect Neil Denari has long-used the city of Los Angeles to explore the idea of "cultural ergonomics", where forms "fit" our contemporary life. The founding principal of Los Angeles-based Neil M. Denari Architects discusses the firm's work, which includes l.a. Eyeworks, the Alan-Voo Residence, built projects in Japan for the Mitsubishi United Financial Group, and HL23 in New York, a 14 story residential tower next to the High Line.
