    In conjunction with Otis’ Creative Action program, Big City Forum presents a series of four discussions featuring individuals who reinvent social space and redefine how we engage with each other.

  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Student Work by Studio

STUDIO 1: Scale/Structure/Circulation

In this “BOOTCAMP” studio, students are introduced to and practice technical drawing (plans and sections) for the first time, through the design and documentation of spatial environments of increasing size and complexity.

 


STUDIO 2: Landscape/Furniture

In this first “site-based” studio, students design two URBAN PARKS “sited” in actual places in Los Angeles. Students design the complete spatial experience including landscape materials such as plants, water, concrete, etc.


STUDIO 3: Interior/Display/Exchange

Students design two commercial or public INTERIORS such as restaurants, stores, museums, health or medical facilities, offices, etc.

 


STUDIO 4: Private/Interior Architecture

Students design residential environments  (CONDOS or APARTMENTS) located within an existing building, and modify portions of the existing structure, facades and/or roof. This aggressive structural component distinguishes “interior architecture” from ”interiors.”

 


STUDIO 5: Public/Urban Architecture

Students design a NEW BUILDING located in an urban context between two, other existing buildings. This unique problem requires students to focus on the two facades (front and back), the roof and interiors, as well as access for pedestrians and cars.

 


STUDIO 6: Building/Landscape

Students design a NEW FREE-STANDING BUILDING with integrated LANDSCAPE components. In this studio, students may choose to more fully develop the building, interiors, and/or landscape, based on their primary interest, or interests.
