MAK Day 2013

Admission to the Schindler House, 835 N. Kings Road, West Hollywood, is free all day12-4 PM: UnforgettingLA: focus on women in architecture and design – The MAK Center is pleased to partner with East of Borneo for its second Wikipedia edit-a-thon, with a focus on architecture and design, and an emphasis on the many overlooked contributions that women have made to these fields. UnforgettingLA is an ongoing series focused on “unforgetting” underrepresented artists and other aspects of the city’s cultural history.This particular meetup was inspired by last summer’s campaign to retroactively acknowledge architect Denise Scott Brown for her work in the 1991 Pritzker Prize awarded to her partner, Robert Venturi; a campaign which, in turn, sparked an inspiring essay, Unforgetting Women Architects: From the Pritzker to Wikipedia, that argues for the importance of online histories in correcting these oversights.
