Architecture Made From Cans, LA Live Ice Rink Reopens

New, 2 comments

HISTORIC CORE: Last week, the Farmers & Merchants Bank Building in the Old Bank District hosted 2013's Canstruction LA, where architects pull out all their best kung fu to make elaborate structures out of cans (which are donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank at the end of the show). The event ended up raising 21,076 pounds of food and $12,034 for the cause. Check out all the entries and their awards up above--jurors this year were architect Gwynne Pugh, Edward Cella of Edward Cella Art & Architecture, Joe Moller of the Downtown Art Walk, chef Michelle Lainez of Pete's Cafe, and (disclosure alert!) AGK of Curbed LA. [Curbed Inbox]

SOUTH PARK: It feels like ice skating weather to we thin-skinned Angelenos, so LA Live has decided to reopen its LA Kings Ice at LA Live, which had closed January 2. The outdoor rink returned this past Friday and will now be open through February (Monday through Friday 5 pm to 11:30 pm; weekends 3 pm to 11:30 pm). Its centerpiece Christmas tree will be replaced by "a replica Stanley Cup trophy and giant banners celebrating the LA Kings Stanley Cup Championship." [Curbed Inbox]
