Director Eric Moss Discusses Relationship Between Academia & Practice

SCI-Arc Director Eric Owen Moss will participate in the second installment of the AIA|LA Academia & Practice Symposia, taking place on Thursday, June 20th, 2013 from 6-7pm at the offices of Johnson Fain.

The series consists of five video-taped discussions AIA is coordinating with each of the Deans/Directors of the five Los Angeles-area NAAB-accredited architecture degree programs.

The AIA has organized these series with direction and input by Scott Johnson, FAIA, currently serving as the 2013 President of AIA Los Angeles. Moderated by Johnson, each of the sessions features one Dean/Director who will address the relationship between academia and practice, questioning the interplay between theory and the production of buildings, as well as the evolving terrains of research, design and construction.

The series is open to the public based on a first-come-first-serve basis, and will be held at the offices of Johnson Fain located at 1201 North Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012. More at
