What is Zoning? A Workshop by Rosten Woo

Who does it serve and why should you care? Zoning law regulates land use across the city, and shapes buildings, blocks, and whole neighborhoods. It can be a tool for preservation or for rapid physical and economic development. But how does it work? And why is it so controversial? This hands-on workshop will use games and activities that Rosten Woo has developed with The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and Dr. Pop to teach zoning fundamentals and explore the technical and ethical questions behind the laws of the land.

What does Community Control Look like in the New Trump Era?

What does community control look like? In the Trump Era, cities like Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco have rushed to reassure that their governments intend to oppose new restrictive federal immigration policies and to reinforce their statuses as Sanctuary Cities. But as homeless sweeps and evictions continue to endanger communities of working class and people of color in these cities, we have to ask: what does "sanctuary" mean in the era of rampant gentrification?

Zoning & Its Application

  • 250 South Broadway Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

How are your rights as a Los Angeles citizen, resident, and public body affected by zoning application? Zoning is not simply the regulation of land use and building codes. It's application as law also impacts individual and collective rights and services, private and public land ownership, and the social and political make-up of the city of Los Angeles. 

M&A, Rosten Woo, and the LA Poverty Department (LAPD) present a two-month long series of public programs around questions of zoning and its application.

In and Out of Pictures

In and Out of Pictures is the closing event for the installation The Kid Gets out of the Picture. The installation is a collaboration between four practices that were given the task of re-creating the seminal elements of an English picturesque garden: a hill, a rock, a hut, and trees. The purpose of the symposium is two-fold: first, to propose a sustained parallel between the contemporary architectural moment and early 19th-century landscape design; and second, to sharpen the distinctions between varieties of practice that would include picture-making as a significant component of architectural labor.
