3 Design Things to Do This Weekend

Written by

Three design events DnA recommends you check out this weekend.


1. The Great Walk of LA

This weekend is the 8th annual Great Walk of L.A., where Angelenos are encouraged to shed their automobiles and honor their inner-pedestrian by traversing the entire westside from Echo Park Lake to Santa Monica on foot, mostly via Sunset and Wilshire Boulevards. Think of this as preparation for that extra slice of pumpkin pie next Thursday.

Architecture in LA: Presentation by Charles Phoenix 

This weekend at Art Center, L.A.’s inimitable pop culture humorist Charles Phoenix will host “a fun-fueled whirlwind adventure tour extravaganza exploring undiscovered and underrated mid-century architectural gems past and present.” Expect to fall in love with his effervescent spirit, booming voice and sunny garb.
