Spring ARCH TOUR FEST: Council_St Art Shed & Atwater Canyon

(2 tours in 1)

Council_St

Situated in the Historic Filipinotown domestic landscape, the Council_St Art Shed is an art studio wrapped in shingles, shedding water and notions of building type alike. Programmed by owner and artist Kent M Young, the space is used for his own studio practice and for his commercial gallery program, ‘council_st’ which opens to the public, attendant with an emerging contemporary art scene.

Like the roofs and siding of so many neighboring vernacular structures, the shingle-clad Art Shed presents a figure as easily overlooked as can be arresting. Streetside, the Art Shed’s elevation is a practice in deadpan, giving away little to signify its use. At its interior north-facing windows open to abundant, painterly light, belying the structure's enigmatic opaque massing. For more information on this project, visit Wallpaper Magazine on Council_St

Atwater Canyon

Atwater Canyon is an adaptive reuse project which introduces a canyon-like paseo through an existing single story unreinforced masonry building, situated in the Atwater Village commercial corridor on Glendale Boulevard.
The paseo creates a new thoroughfare between sidewalk and parking lots in this mid-block urban condition while more than doubling the commercial ‘frontage’ of the building, which anticipates new restaurants and retail tenants forming a collective urban destination.  Throughout the development, skylights and roof openings filter light and breezes into the walkway. At its center, the paseo is punctuated by a dramatic open-air courtyard whose opening exposes a battered brick wall and demonstrates the antiquated assembly of the existing roof, sculpturally interstiched by new perimeter framing – an architectural detail negotiating the building’s past and its
newly evolving present.  For more information on this project, visit Metropolis on Atwater Canyon and Dezeen on Atwater Canyon.  Additionally, to listen in to a podcast on this project as well as Formation Association’s practice, visit Building LA Podcast on Atwater Canyon.

 

Information regarding the tour will be emailed directly to registrants 24 hours before the event.
