"The project, known simply as "Lot 86", was featured in the recent Architecture and Design Museum show "34 Los Angeles Architects", to be published in the Balcony Press book "2000+ New Architecture from Los Angeles", set for release this Fall. The proposed design cascades down its hillside site, conforming to the natural landscape and opening to breath-taking city and mountain views. The folded planes of the bonderized metal skin are punctured by a rooftop garden, skylights, translucent panels, and walls of glass, marrying the pleasures of the Southern California lifestyle to the rigors of post-structuralist thought. Approved by the Department of Building and Safety and ready for construction, this endeavor is ready for someone who appreciates cutting edge design, the opportunity to turn fantasy into reality, and the value associated with as-yet unbuilt work."
