Here’s a fun way to pass an afternoon: Walk out of your place. Begin going in whatever direction you choose, wherever your spirit takes you, for an hour or so. At the end of that time, turn around and take a different route back home. But while you’re going on this walk, pay careful attention to how many small pockets of urban agriculture blanket the city. Parkway gardens. Neighborhood nurseries. Schoolyard veggies poking their heads out of carefully maintained planters. If you do it in the afternoon, you might find a farmers’ market of some sort. Such is the current ever-expanding landscape of urban agriculture in our fair city.
Making LA, take a tour of the Nature Gardens at the Natural History Museum to learn how the museum’s scientists worked closely with designers atMia Lehrer + Associates to create an outdoor classroom for the city. Then take a very special peek inside The Elysian, a former municipal water department building that’s been turned into gorgeous apartments by Linear City and Studio Hus.
“White is the reflection of all colors, yet has the distinction of none. It is simultaneously complete and empty.” says Kim. Informed by her Korean heritage, Kim designs in a palette of white to express simplicity and subtlety. “Working in monochrome quiets the larger details and allows nuances to step forward, making more legible the variances in tone and shade. Much is hidden in plain sight, discovered only when one learns to see. I use white fabrics to evoke lightness, and to inspire moments of dreaming.” Dosa Summer 2014
