The SAH 2016 Annual International Conference will take place in Pasadena/Los Angeles, April 6-10, with the theme New Local/Global Infrastructures. The conference will engage participants from around the world with the rich, evolving legacy of the region’s built environment, including 42 sessions on built environment topics from antiquity to the critical present, roundtables, tours of the region's architecture and landscapes, and more. UCLA professor Eric Avila, specialist in racial identity, urban space, and cultural representation, will give the introductory address, and UCLA professor Dana Cuff, author of Architecture: The Story of Practice, will give the plenary talk. Regional paper sessions include “Los Angeles Infrastucture: Design, Aesthetics, Publics,” “Styles, Revival Styles, California Styles,” and “Reappraising California Counterculture.” The SAH Los Angeles Seminar will bring together constituencies of historic conservation, design professionals, and the community at large to examine SurveyLA/HistoricPlacesLA (the online comprehensive citywide historic resource developed by the City of Los Angeles together with the Getty Conservation Institute) and contemplate its local/global implications and possibilities.
