The festival typically takes place at the ROW DTLA with off-site events sprinkled all throughout the city; but this year, it’s taking place online via pre-taped videos, tours, zooms and live streams. This year’s program is LADF’s 10th anniversary and despite the circumstances, it hasn’t lost the eclectic, bright energy that comes from its leaders’ unconditional love for L.A.’s architecture and design community. Drop in on awards, podcasts, tours, talks, book events, and studio visits — starting with the kick-off evening honoring the inimitable built environment maven Frances Anderton. Experience LADF IRL through curated window installations and creative vitrines on view at ROW DTLA. Thursday – Sunday, September 24-27, all free. ladesignfestival.org.
