INSTALLATION: MADWORKSHOP x UCLA Architecture and Urban Design x Succulent Walls
Thursday, June 20, 2019 – 10:00 AM Sunday, June 23, 2019 – 5:00 PM, ROW DTLA – Market Row 777 Alameda Street, Los Angeles
Succulent Walls tackle how architecture can respond to Southern California’s precarious relationship to water and lack of disaster preparedness. The work of a Master of Architecture (M.Arch.I) Research Studio taught by Heather Roberge, this collaboration between Mary and David Martin’s MADWORKSHOP and UCLA Architecture and Urban Design prototypes a series of residential water catchment systems.
By integrating a system for easily installed water storage and food production into the residential vernacular, the class of eleven graduate students hopes to transform our laissez-faire attitude towards this critical and finite resource into one of proactive self-sufficiency. Five group projects were distilled into two super-group designs that will be showcased at the Los Angeles Design Festival.
“I am not sure I have specific advice for a young architect, and at times I still feel like I am one of them, but there is something I can share. I have never chosen a job solely because it paid well or seemed convenient and yet I found myself being in a place I never imagined possible 20 years ago. I always followed a genuine interest in being involved in what matters the most, and as far as I am concerned, it has always paid off.“
