It's a quiet post-long weekend Tuesday night in Los Angeles, but if you're looking to head out and feed your mind, there are still a few things worth checking out...

Talk: Is Good Architecture a Luxury? With Michael Maltzan
Zócalo Public Square presents Michael Maltzan in conversation with KCRW's Frances Anderton tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Petersen Automotive Museum. Maltzan, known for his work with Frank Gehry on the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hammer Museum's Billy Wilder Theater and courtyard, is also distinguished for his socially conscious buildings. His housing projects for the homeless--from the Rainbow complex on San Pedro Street to the forthcoming Star Apartments at Sixth and Maple--as well as his Inner City Arts building, provide protection, beauty and services cost-effectively.
