3 Design Things to Do this Weekend

Written by

DnA recommends these three design events this weekend.

Venice 6114

1. On the Road

DnA DJ Danielle Rago is also a curator of design and architecture events. Her latest takes place this weekend and involves a free, self-driving tour of some of key architectural homes on the Westside. In a treasure-hunt like twist on regular home tours, however, participants won’t actually be seeing inside the homes (with the exception of the Schindler House). Rather, they will find postcards designed by some younger designers in the mailboxes at the addresses listed on the map.

The concept, says Danielle, is for eight emerging designers “to engage with and respond to (the earlier houses) through the medium of drawing.” The day will conclude with a talk at at the not so architectural looking Venice 6114 (above), located at 6114 Venice Boulevard in Culver City.

When:  Sunday, November 17 from 10AM-4PM

Where: Various sites in West Los Angeles, map of sites can be found on their website.

Tickets: Free! But make sure you print the map!

Champagne Brunch

2. A Champagne Brunch on the West Lawn of the Hollyhock House 

Good architecture looks even better when served with a glass of bubbly. The Barnsdall Foundation will host a champagne brunch at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House on Sunday morning. The brunch includes a 3-flight champagne tasting courtesy of Silverlake Wine, brunch provided by Heirloom LA, and free pour-over coffee by Bru Coffee Bar.

When: Sunday November 17 11AM-2PM

Where: 4800 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Tickets: event is free to Barnsdall members; $25 for non-members Click here for tickets

3. People Who Love The Hyperion Bridge Bike Ride

A proposed redesign of the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge has spurned outrage among many walkers and cyclists in L.A. who had hoped bike lanes and sidewalks could be included in the new design. Pending definitive news about the future of the bridge, some cyclists are gathering on the bridge to bike and bring “ideas, printouts, whatever else should be in the mix.”

When: Sunday November 17 10AM

Where: Meet at Kaldi Coffee, 3147 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles, California 90039
