VENICE: Maybe you want to cool off by visiting the ocean this weekend. Good thing the Venice Art Walk & Auction is also taking place. There are studio visits and architectural tours, the latter tour will include a home (nearly completed and the rendering is above), by Daly Genik Architects. Via the site: ""An existing house and garage are transformed into colorful garden lanterns that enfold a shared courtyard, entirely wrapped with a perforated metal skin to provide sun shades and privacy. Winner of 2007 AIA/LA NEXT LA Award."
DOWNTOWN: Biscuit Company Lofts has an ad in this month's Dwell magazine proclaiming that they are 85 percent sold. Is that the truth? Or one of those lies---like the one a tipster fed us about Nicolas Cage looking at the building? Yes, old wounds.
