The only thing we like better than throwing our own de LaB events is supporting our partners around town when they throw really important ones. Join us on Saturday, July 14, when we party with the venerable Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design who will be rolling out the red carpet to celebrate its 25th anniversary with the retrospective exhibition Unfinished Business: 25 Years of Discourse in Los Angeles.

Throughout its 25 years of existence, the LA Forum has brought together young designers, seasoned professionals, critics, urban theorists, artists, students and others interested in their physical environment through a diverse series of activities. Built around material pulled from the LA Forum’s 25-year-old archive of newsletters, books, pamphlets, photo-series, multi-media soundbites, video projections, and other memorabilia, Unfinished Business: 25 Years of Discourse in Los Angeles seeks to find within the LA Forum’s history, the architectural questions, urban design conversation starters and critical loose ends that are just as relevant now as they were over the past quarter century.

The exhibition even features one of de LaB’s projects: John Chase’s West Hollywood, the map honoring the legendary urban designer we created in collaboration with Frances Anderton, Siobhan Burke, Jennifer Davis, John Kaliski, John Keho, Christopher Hawthorne, Deborah Murphy and Alissa Walker, with design and illustration by Keith Scharwath. 

Now, this is one party we can get behind!
