Yesterday, we posted the feature from our current California issue, “On Their Mark,” about a new show at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego highlighting seven local firms. While sending over the pictures of the exhibition, Mix: Nine San Diego Architects and Designers, that went into our slideshow, the fine folks at MCASD also sent along these nice photos from the opening party, which were taken by Lauren Radack. In case, like us, you couldn’t make it. (And if you know anyone in these photos we may not have mentioned, do tell).

A view of Publics Manifesto. It reads in whole: CAN WE STRENGTHEN THE TIES BETWEEN OUR COUNTRIES? CAN WE, within the framework of a vast disparity of rich and poor, and with the understanding that our future together is nearing a tipping point, STRENGTHEN, not by relying on the existing one way exchange of cheap labor that forms the basis for THE TIES, which have never been firm or sustained in the entire tumultuous history of our nations, and in fact, has more often than not been a tolerated and uneasy relationship based on short sighted goals of profit without sustainability, BETWEEN a zone which is both difficult to define or control and not only describes the physical border zone but also the status of our current relationship and which might damage OUR future ability to solve our mutual problems even though so much suffering has the potential to inevitably lead to a worsening breakdown that will cause irreparable strife to citizens of both COUNTRIES before it is too late?

    Who covered this event??? The descriptions of the various installations in the previous featured article, slideshow, and captions here seem to be made by someone who has been grossly misinformed or knows nothing about architecture. There are so many mistakes and dumb observations. Obviously whoever wrote these comments should have taken the time to attend the event or should have done their research.

  2. smr says:

    I’m really annoyed at all the inaccuracies found in the comments through the slideshow and above – from decriptions of projects and media to number of women architects invloved. It’s insulting to those involved in the show when you don’t do your homework before writing or fact check before posting.

  3. Matt Chaban says:

    I thought we made it pretty clear we weren’t there, but instead had some extra photos we thought we’d share from the opening. We even asked for input. Maybe if you’d offered some, we woulda added it.

    (Admittedly, apologies are due on the Luce-as-only-lady gaffe, but we also fixed that as soon as we saw it.)
