FILM SCREENING: FACE OF A NATION 6/19

The American story has spread worldwide through our business interests, products and entertainment. This has been largely reflected as a success story in the global domination of our corporations and consumer culture. But no one anticipated internet or social media providing a "virtual space" for extremism to circulate false narratives about America. Who might think this might be related to World’s Fairs?

FACE OF A NATION captures the erosion of the American image as the country loses sight of its vision and values. Probing deeply into national identity, architect Mina Chow investigates the controversy surrounding US participation at World’s Fairs for the last 25 years. The film asks important questions about the country’s role in the world and perceptions of the American image. With our diminished presence at World’s Fairs, have we lost sight of what it means to be American?

Mina Chow has been touring and educating nationally about the abolition of funding to represent the BEST of the American people. With Expo 2020 Dubai is less than two years away, spreading truth has become more important than ever. Daughter of immigrants, an idealistic American architect struggles to keep her dream alive as she journeys to discover why America abandoned World’s Fairs. REGISTER

COMMUNITY EVENTS OF INTEREST:

 

CREATE + CONSTRUCT 6/18


A contemporary facade is more than the outward face of the building’s architectural expression, it is a driving factor that influences overall performance. As California continues to embrace innovative design and impose more stringent performance standards, AEC professionals must carefully consider and reimagine the building facade. To make a beautiful, highly functional facade a reality, architects, engineers, and building professionals must understand all various design concepts and translate them into constructible details.

Create + Construct is a day-long symposium bringing together Los Angeles’s AEC leaders to discuss trends and share best practices when designing and constructing contemporary facades. Participants can earn up to 6 AIA/CES Learning Units (LU/HSW) for their attendance. INFO/REGISTER

SAVE THE DATE CarbonPositive'20 International Conference and Expo 2/24-26, 2020

The world will construct a staggering 230 billion square meters (2.5 trillion square feet) of buildings over the next four decades, an area equal to the current worldwide building stock or the equivalent of adding an entire New York City to the planet every 34 days for the next 40 years.

The Conference will explore designing cities and buildings that use sustainable resources, generate a surplus of renewable energy, and convert atmospheric carbon into durable materials and products. By presenting leading-edge knowledge and breakthrough technologies, strategies, planning and design tools, and bringing together key policymakers, planners, architects, engineers, product manufacturers,
and innovators, we can make carbon positive built environments a reality.
