Dingbat 2.0: The Iconic Los Angeles Apartment
SAH/SCC Panel Discussion
Saturday, March 26, 2016

Mark your calendars! SAH/SCC is hosting an event that will explore one of the most misunderstood architectural phenomena in Los Angeles…the Dingbat Apartment.

Dingbat 2.0: The Iconic Los Angeles Apartment as Projection of a Metropolis (DoppelHouse Press, 2016) is the first critical study of the dingbat apartment, the most ubiquitous and mundane building type in Los Angeles. The dingbat grew out of Los Angeles’s rapid postwar expansion period, and for more than half a century has been vilified, praised, studied, and often misunderstood—as much for being ugly and ordinary as for being innovative, iconoclastic, and distinctly “LA.” As a housing type, the dingbat has enabled the sprawl for which Los Angeles is infamous, while simultaneously creating a consistency of urban density achieved by few other 20th century cities.

This event will feature a moderated panel discussion with several of the book’s contributing authors and photographers. Put Saturday, March 26th at 2PM on your calendar now.

Dingbat 2.0 is a project by the Los Angeles Forum on Architecture and Urban Design.
