This year, SCI-Arc’s MAIN EVENT returns to its Downtown Los Angeles Art District campus on Friday, April 28, 2017 and is sure to be unforgettable, as the celebration will mark the opening of the school’s 10th Annual Spring Show Exhibition with a special cocktail reception to raise funds for SCI-Arc’s Scholarship Endowment Fund.

Each year MAIN EVENT brings together leading architects and designers, developers, contractors, architectural patrons and philanthropists, as well as alumni for the purpose of celebrating SCI-Arc’s reputation as a world-renowned center of innovation and incomparable dedication to educating architects who imagine and shape the future.

This year SCI-Arc will be honoring Thom Mayne (Morphosis) and Merry Norris (Merry Norris Contemporary Art) for their extraordinary contributions to SCI-Arc and to Los Angeles.

Guests will be treated to bespoke “3D printed” confections by alumni Liz and Kyle von Hasseln (M.Arch ’12) and encouraged to participate in an immersive VR demonstration presented by SCI-Arc faculty and students.

Musical ambiance for the evening will be provided by Adam Bravin, also known as DJ Adam 12 and half of the duo She Wants Revenge.

For more information regarding lead sponsorship opportunities, email your inquiries to or call the Office of Strategic Advancement at 213.356.5347.

All proceeds from MAIN EVENT 13 will support the SCI-Arc Scholarship Endowment Fund. Purchase tickets below
