b roll

while (or should I say whilst?) gehry is all over the british press (who have already coined a nickname for the gehry/pitt project for Hove: "the pitts"), our local media is finally turning to some lesser known names in architecture:

  • LA Weekly take a look at josh schweizter to see how architects build for themselves, when there is no client, no deadlines and "the possibilities were endless."
  • and latimes profiles Mark Rios, an architect who manages to straddle both landscape and building design, and even product design thrown in for good measure. oh, and he's kind of hot.
