Video: Moby on Modernism


We had a full house yesterday at The ACE Hotel to see Grammy-nominated musician Moby wax poetic on LA architecture, minimalism, Lautner and much more.  The conversation covered everything from John Pawson to Zaha Hadid, madly unlivable minimalism, and a bit of personal history on how the artist came to be such a fan of architecture.  Dubbed LA architecture’s newest mascot by the LA Weekly, the populist Moby effect is quite clear.  As he said himself, everyone should feel entitled to have a point of view on architecture.  When architecture is made exclusively for architects and academians, it ceases to be relevant.

If you missed the event, the Desert Sun filmed the event.  Watch it here now.
