5TH ANNUAL BIRDHOUSE COMPETITION + KIDS DRAW ARCHITECTURE 10/20

 

Tweet tweet! Get ready for the 5th Annual Birdhouse Competition. Start thinking about your design for that special little house for our fine feathered friends. Kids Draw Architecture 2018 Sketch Session will take place simultaneously here and at all AIA Chapters in California. Children are invited to come learn some drawing techniques, something of significance about the particular location they are about to sketch, and then away they go with paper and pencils. With instruction, interaction, engagement and camaraderie, the kids, and some of the adults even, sharpen their pencils and hone their skills and learn how to look at the world and translate what they see onto paper.

It's going to be great day for kids, families -- and the birds. Details to come...

 

 



COMMUNITY EVENTS OF INTEREST:

 

Remembering Charles and Ray Eames: A Granddaughter’s Memories 9/6

An intimate view of how renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames lived and worked at their home—Case Study House #8 through the eyes of their granddaughter, Lucia Dewey Atwood.

Explore how renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames lived and worked at their home—Case Study House #8. Designed to facilitate a life in work, the award-winning Eames House was the perfect retreat for pondering and honing ideas as well as enjoying an idyllic breakfast or taking photographs in the meadow.

Charles and Ray took their pleasures seriously, and they shared that joy. Family and friends were always being invited into their world of fun. On one visit, you might be filmed chasing a diary-stealing boy; on another, you might be chasing through a cloud of dancing monarch butterflies. Their home, being the fruit of their dedication to the deep anticipation of the need, was the perfect venue.

Only years later did we as grandchildren see past the fun to the serious work. As the Eames’s wrote about the circus, “Within this apparent freewheeling license, we find a discipline, which is almost unbelievable.”

Their rigor, their appreciation of good goods, the honest use of materials, and the importance of connections, but most especially the joy found in a deep understanding of the need, generated the sense of “way-it-should-be-ness” that is present in all their work, from chairs and architecture to film and exhibitions.

Please RSVP to Andrea Raabe by Monday, September 3 if you plan on joining! INFO/Details here on event flyer
