California Dreaming

June 25, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


What does “California Dream” mean to you?

That’s the question that will be addressed by designers, architects and audience members gathering at the Helms Design Center on Sunday, June 25th, from 4 pm to 7 pm.

The event marks the recent publication of Architectural Design (AD) magazine’s California Dreaming issue, celebrating the latest in California design and architecture. Participating architects and writers – including Aaron Gensler, Alvin Huang, Benjamin Ball, Craig Hodgetts, Denise Bratton, Elena Manferdini, Erin Wright, Heather Flood, Jasmine Benyamin, Jill Stoner, Preliminary Research Office – will join a lively conversation with moderator Frances Anderton about the themes of the issue and the broader cultural impact of West Coast architecture and design. The dialogue will be followed by a public reception, and sales of the special issue.

California Dreaming is the final event for the Los Angeles Design Festival, a citywide celebration of “design for the people.” It is also one of the last issues of Architectural Design (AD), an influential magazine founded in London in 1930 that has advanced cutting edge technologies and ideas in architecture, and will cease publication in 2024.
