LIVESTREAM | THOM MAYNE & MICHAEL MALTZAN
Starting in November 2020, we will take a Virtual World Tour and “visit” selected countries around the world to meet some of their most relevant architects. Now that we can not meet you and our speakers at a fully booked auditorium, we will bring the speakers directly to your homes and offices!
At our sixth event of the tour, we will “visit” Los Angeles and meet two of its most remarkable architects.
On Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 live from 10:30 to 12:00 PST Los Angeles time (19:30 CET Berlin time) the two following American architects will talk on our virtual stage about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, none of their projects may be mentioned:
