Santa Monica architect, Hagy Belzberg of Belzberg Architects, is all about architectural innovation – and his recently completed, award-winning projects illustrate this beautifully. His tendency toward molded and sculptural forms defines his approach. This is evidenced from the triangular shapes of the award-winning Conga Room, to the relationship of the Los Angeles Holocaust Museum to its adjacent park which envelopes the structure. Join Belzberg as he discusses his design strategies for creating architecturally innovative projects in his lecture, Desert Installations, Salsa Dancing and the Architecture of Tragedy at Palm Springs Modernism Week. Design is a collaborative process between client and architect, and Belzberg will illustrate his lecture with recent projects of his Santa Monica firm.
