Architecture as Communication Thursday, February 9, 6:30 p.m. Annenberg Auditorium Architecture and design help shape our social and cultural interactions, in relation to not only the public use of buildings, but also the architect’s engagement with clients, contractors and communities. Thom Mayne, founder of the Los Angeles–based architecture firm Morphosis, and Michael Govan, director and CEO of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, will discuss the design process and the interplay between architecture and public policy as a source of creativity and tension. Mayne is an internationally renowned architect and recipient of the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honor. Prior to joining LACMA in 2006, Govan was president and director of the Dia Art Foundation in New York. Their presentation will be followed by a discussion with Qingyun Ma, dean of the USC School of Architecture, and Larry Gross, director of the School of Communication at USC Annenberg. Organized by the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism.
