In his article, “Power Grid,” architectural writer Sam Lubell highlights husband-and-wife design teams including Carlos Zubieta (B.Arch '94) of Bernstein-Zubieta Architects and Tatiana Barhar (M.Arch '96) of Verdego Design; Robert Thibodeau (M.Arch '93) and Yasi Vafaie (B.Arch '90) of DU Architects; and Jason Ruperto (M.Arch2 '01) and Emmylou Vy (B.Arch '00) of Emjae Design Shop.
"L.A.'s hottest architects turn a quiet quadrant of Venice streets into the insiders's residential 'hood' for top design talent,” writes Lubell.
All homes listed in the article are based in the city of Venice, located in a “non-descript, non-touristed pocket of tree-lined streets east of Abbot Kinney and north of Venice Boulevard…ground zero for the city’s highest concentration of A-list architects."
Other featured alumni include Angela Brooks (M.Arch '91) of Pugh+Scarpa, David Hertz (B.Arch '83) of Studio of Environmental Architecture, and Anthony Coscia of Coscia Day Architecture+Design. The article also mentions former faculty members Steven Ehrlich, Deborah Richmond, Lawrence Scarpa and Olivier Touraine.
