Pencil This In: Architect Massimiliano Fuksas @ LACMA, Photog Sebastião Salgado @ the Hammer
LACMA presents its Masters of Architecture Lecture Series with Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas tonight at 7:30 pm. His studio focuses on urban design and public projects, including the Bao’an International Airport, Shenzhen, China; Congress Center EUR, Rome, Italy; African Institute of Science and Technology, Abuja, Nigeria; Zenith Music Hall, Strasbourg, France, and Amiens, France; Armani Ginza Tower, Tokyo, Japan; and New Milan Trade Fair, Milan, Italy. From 1998 to 2000, he served as director of the VII Biennale Internazionale di Architettura di Venezia “Less Aesthetics, More Ethics.” Tonight he’ll be introduced by LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne. Tickets are $12.
The Hammer Museum presents documentary photographer Sebastião Salgado tonight at 7:30 pm. He’s traveled the world to capture the “human toll of violence and migration in visually stunning photographs of manual laborers, refugees, and sprawling metropolises.” In 1998, Salgado and his wife established the Instituto Terra to restore biodiversity to the Atlantic Forest in Brazil, encourage sustainable development, and conduct research and environmental education. While the program is free, tickets are required and are available at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office one hour prior to start time. Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6 pm.
