Gallery: Re-thinking the LA industrial vernacular and the long span tradition

Instructor: Eric Nulman

This project challenges a conventional vernacular LA long-span shed through rethinking its wall, structure, and membrane systems. Taking in the cultural and historical context of Leimert Park, the project challenges the shed typology to be considered as an infrastructure for variable community demands of programs instead of the structure itself. This infrastructure serves as a resilient base to accommodate the temporality of generational programmatic demands.
