Last week, all four de LaB hosts attended the AIA Los Angeles Design Awards at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, where Marissa and Alissa were honored to present the Next LA Awards, 17 different projects that were very much in the spirit of de LaB’s mission. It was a great night, and the highlight was meeting our fellow co-presenter Moby, who is—who knew?—a huge architecture junkie and writes the awesome Moby Los Angeles Architecture Blog.

Here’s a video of his remarks, which opened the awards show. We like when he calls L.A. an “architectural shitshow—in the best way possible”:

Thanks to AIA Los Angeles for having us be a part of the evening and thanks to Tibby Rothman for the photo!
