Modern Design for MOCA 2013

Now showing at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Los Angeles through September 16 is an exhibit for those who share our love of modern architecture. "A New Scupturalism: Contermporary Architecture From Southern California" marks the first exhibition and catalogue to examine the role of Los Angeles–based architect Frank Gehry, arguably the most significant and innovative architect of the later part of the twentieth century, and the generation of Los Angeles architects that followed him, including Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, Thom Mayne, and Eric Owen Moss, to name a few. A New Sculpturalism focuses on this important era in American architecture. What unites this group of architects is not a drive towards a singular aesthetic, style or form but rather a relentless commitment to asking essential questions and challenging the very notion of what architecture is and can be. Their work is distinguished by innovative design, inventive use of materials, and a bold visual vocabulary.
