Moby by Carlos Detres

Musician and L.A. devotee Moby will share photos he has taken for his blog, Moby Los Angeles Architecture, to explore the city’s revered, undiscovered, and bizarre buildings. "I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it many times again in the future, tautologically," writes Moby on his blog, "but we live in a very odd city county place."

Architect and A. Quincy Jones expert Cory Buckner will speak at Dwell on Design Los Angeles May 31, 2015

Architect Cory Buckner’s forthcoming book, Crestwood Hills: The Chronicle of a Modern Utopia, revisits the obstacles faced by the Mutual Housing Association (MHA) in 1947, as they worked to develop a utopian, post–World War II community in Brentwood, California. The struggling Crestwood Hills project (originally called the Mutual Housing Tract) eventually put the MHA on the map as the only successful large-scale modern housing cooperative in the west. The cooperative hired Southern California modernist architects A. Quincy Jones and Whitney R. Smith to design 28 floor plans to offer its members. Onstage at Dwell on Design, Buckner will reveal rare images from her new book, and discuss this very unique development in Southern California’s history.

Already legends in the field of architecture and design, in 1977 Charles and Ray Eames set out to adapt a book by a Dutch educator into a short documentary, Powers of Ten. The film shows the human environment slowly receding as the camera zooms out over a park in Chicago into outerspace. In a matter of seconds, the Eamseses put the city in a radically new perspective, and began a new conversation about scale. After a screening of Powers of Ten, Eames and Llisa Demetrios, Charles and Ray’s grandchildren, will discuss the short film’s legacy onstage.

Moooi co-founder and 2015 Dwell on Design keynote speaker Marcel Wanders.

Dwell is pleased to welcome Marcel Wanders as the keynote speaker for the 10th annual Dwell on Design Show. A visionary thinker and designer, Wanders often speaks to the importance of open-mindedness and the responsibility of bringing humanity into the design industry's work. Wanders's goal—to "create an environment of love," and inspire a life filled with passion—embodies a desire to connect, communicate and push boundaries, all of which align with Dwell on Design's unconventional approach to the traditional design show.
