Reflecting On PST

Reflecting On PST

Los Angeles Review Of Books has a great story up by Joe Day that reflects on the most recently closed Pacific Standard Time architecture showcase. He breaks things down by show and what they did and it’s a really great summary of this happening.

We certainly didn’t think so but, boy, is Moby and his LA architecture loving efforts so great for the city. It only makes sense with the new Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture In L.A. that Mr. M would be enlisted to speak about and endorse the fabulous, weird, non-cohesive, and wonderful buildings that surround us in this city. Moby is the subject of a new little video from PST that is part commercial for the show(s), part meditation on our local wonderful and mundane architecture.
