Los Angeles Chapter Launch Party

On Friday, October 21 from 6-10pm, the Architecture Lobby will host a launch party in collaboration with the Jai & Jai Gallery to mark the launch of a new, dedicated Architecture Lobby Chapter in Los Angeles.  The party is free and open to the public.  Jai & Jai Gallery, one of Los Angeles’s most progressive architecture galleries proudly supports the Lobby, and shares the goals and ambitions of The Architecture Lobby.

The party will also feature an exclusive LA screening of (Re)Working Architecture – a film documenting a performance by The Architecture Lobby during the 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial.  Copies of the Lobby’s acclaimed book, Asymmetric Labors: The Economy of Architecture in Theory and Practice, first launched at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennial and featured at the Lisbon Triennial, will be available for sale at the event and also on Jai & Jai’s webshop.
