Inside SCI-Arc


Heather Flood Exhibits in Los Angeles DCA Show

SCI-Arc alumna and faculty member Heather Flood (M.Arch ‘04) will exhibit her work in the LAAFL group exhibition showcasing the work of the 2012 Los Angeles Fellowship Laboratory award recipients.

Titled “Wonder Wall,” Flood’s project explores the role of graphics in architecture through the design and construction of 3-D tartan grids.

Organized by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the exhibition opens Saturday, June 2 at the Plaza de la Raza in Los Angeles. An exhibition reception, featuring readings and performances, is scheduled
Saturday, June 9, 3-6pm.

Flood's fellowship will also culminate in an installation at the Municipal Art Gallery in September. Flood is a designer of information, graphics, and architecture. In 2007, she founded F-lab with Ramiro Diaz-Granados, a form laboratory that focuses on the popular application of contemporary design and fabrication techniques.

F-lab’s recent commissions include a retail expansion strategy and store prototype for a new frozen yogurt brand, the design and installation of an exhibition to showcase the work of 45 contemporary designers, and the design and fabrication of the winning scheme for a board of director’s conference table. In addition to her professional practice, Flood teaches in the undergraduate and graduate programs at SCI-Arc.

The LAAFL exhibition remains on view through June 30. Plaza de la Raza is located at Lincoln Park, 3540 North Mission Rd.
