In the Danish House Illustration, Kristina Dam Studio celebrates Danish architect and designer Finn Juhl. A part of the “An Abstraction of FJ” series, this print is defined by its use of line, geometric details, and pattern. The series is based on multiple hand drawings she created while studying the work of Finn Juhl. Kristina Dam called to Juhl’s use of curved lines in his designs, which is clearly celebrated here in the House Print.
Set on a green-blue background, the Tree House Illustration from Kristina Dam Studio is comprised of patterned lines, angles, and geometric shapes to create the appearance of a modern home, curving front stairway, and surrounding trees.

Historic Preservation and Adaptive Reuse. When AIA architects Chava Danielson and Eric Haas of DSH // architecture transformed a midcentury Los Angeles insurance building into the Larchmont Charter High School campus, featured in Dwell’s May 2015 issue, they preserved key elements of the original structure, while reconfiguring the interior, adding vibrant washes of color, and creating classrooms that would inspire students. The two will walk the audience through the project.

Joining Danielson and Haas onstage will be Leo Marmol, FAIA, of Marmol Radziner, whose firm has undertaken the most sensitive restorations of iconic architecture, including Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House, Rudolf Schindler’s Elliot House, and E. Stewart Williams’ 1961 Santa Fe Federal Savings and Loan building in Palm Springs, California (pictured above), which was repurposed into the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center. Join the trio as they embark on a visual and philosophical journey through the concepts of preservation, restoration and adaptive reuse.

This course will be held on Saturday, May 30, 12:00 p.m. at Stage A
