HOUSING & NEIGHBO(U)RHOODS - a roundtable conversation about a tale of two cities:  Los Angeles & Dublin

Please join us for an architectural peer conversation tracing and reflecting the experiences across two cities on housing and neighbourhood architecture. What are the political, economical, environmental and social drivers underpinning new architecture? What is truly ‘new’ about it?  And what are the lessons learned along the way?   As a roundtable, we will discuss:  Public housing, Private Housing and Neighborhoods,  a human experience of space,  our cities need for housing and most of all, a conversation about design excellence in architecture.

James Mary O’Connor, FAIA - Principal, moore ruble yudell architects & planners

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, James Mary O’Connor came to Charles Moore’s Master Studios at UCLA in 1982 as a Fulbright Scholar. James received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Trinity College in Dublin, his Diploma in Architecture from the Dublin Institute of Technology, and his Master of Architecture from UCLA.

As Principal-in-Charge, James has provided spirited design and project management for residential, academic and mixed-use urban projects, including: Kobe Nishiokamoto Housing in Japan, the Horace Mann Elementary School and Fairmont Towers Hotel Addition, both in San Jose, California. International work has become a focus, with large-scale housing and planning projects such as the Potatisåkern and Tango projects in Malmö, Sweden, the mixed-use development Project Yoda in Manila, and Tianjin-Xinhe New Town in Tianjin, People’s Republic of China. His interest in uncommon building types is reflected in the Sunlaw Power Plant Prototype in Los Angeles, and the Santa Monica Civic Center Parking Structure. With irrepressible energy, James has also led Moore Ruble Yudell teams in national and international design competitions, such as the Beijing Wanhao Century Center, and the winning design for the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, Maryland. Over the past 15 years, James has taught design studio, lectured, and has been invited as guest critic at UCLA, USC, SCI-Arc, University of Calgary, Alberta, University of Hawaii, Manoa, Tianjin University School of Architecture, China, and Tongji University School of Architecture, Shanghai, China.

Douglas Teiger, AIA - Managing Principal, Abramson Teiger Architects

Douglas has always believed that architecture should raise your soul to a higher spiritual level. He believes in creating spaces that are sculpted by light to make people feel good and at home. Douglas began his career in New York City with the Swanke Hayden Connel firm, where he worked on the Statue of Liberty Renovation. Moving to Los Angeles in 1984, he became a Project Designer with Arthur Erickson Architects where he was instrumental in designing the San Diego Convention Center, Brentwood Library, and the renovation of San Francisco’s historic Stockon Street Hotel. After becoming Project Architect at Waldo’s Design and later, Project Manager at Munselle Brown Partnership, he opened his own practice in 1990. In 2000, he merged firms with Trevor Abramson, beginning the era of Abramson Teiger Architects. As managing partner, Douglas’ ability to effectively streamline the operations allows for more time to be spent on design and project research – a major factor in the consistent high level of design associated with ATA.
