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.
