  • On April 21st, a new mural was unveiled at "LA Freewalls Inside" at LALA Gallery. Why is this noteworthy? Unbeknownst to me and likely to the majority of the population, in 2002 Los Angeles prohibited the creation of mural work (on public or private buildings). The Los Angeles Freewalls project hopes to change that.

These chairs from her collection are reclaimed and mixed materials. She adds some softness to classics and vibrancy to often unappreciated basics.

  • These are a few of the works of GMUNK (Bradley G Munkowitz) during his stint as a design director at Buck Los Angeles. They consist of brand pitches that never ended up seeing the light of day as they were intended to. But thankfully, he posted them up on the GMUNK site for us to see. If my accepted designs are ever half as cool as Bradley's rejects, I'll be pretty pumped.

  • Patrick Tighe Architecture designed the modern and geometric M-Vista House in Los Angeles. The home compound consists of a series of buildings with 10,000 sq. feet of living space surrounding an inner courtyard. The spaces consist of folded planes and seemingly random but strategically placed windows. The pool house and guest house mirror each other as restrained and minimal box structures across the pool. The forms are modern without feeling too sterile or minimal.
