    4.15 :: Postopolis! (continues...)

    Well, Scott caught the first night of Postopolis! LA, but I couldn't make it there until the third night...just in time to see our very own Orhan Ayyüce present! How exciting. It's always a new adventure whenever I get to meet an Archinecteur in person, especially if I've known them for years but only online.

    Look! It's Orhan presenting!

    Orhan told me when I arrived that he had just posted his presentation on Archinect, but I didn't quite understand him...until he started his talk and presented directly from Archinect! This means that you can basically experience his presentation much the same way that I did, except for maybe the story about George Michael and Will Rogers Park. But I digress...

    Alex took a picture of me while I took a picture of him, Archinect Paul, and everyone else

    By the way, in case you hadn't noticed, the roof top of the Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles is pretty much the perfect place to have an event with a bunch of designers like this. You get to sit in an environment that makes me think of what might happen if Austin Powers wandered into A Clockwork Orange and a cocktail party broke out. Add to that the clouds of doom LA had hovering over it this week, and the result is a surreal symphony of color, form, and sky.

    Big tall buildings behind wee animal hedges (and some strange dude)

    In fact, I blame the clouds for the 48-hour headache which delayed my recount of the event. I was there, however; here, I present proof!

    Myself and Orhan; I didn't realize that by wearing red I would match the Malcolm McDowell-wannabe waiters

    What fun! If anyone is around Downtown LA on Saturday evening, please come see us have a panel discussion about school blogging and whatever else comes to mind. Introduce yourself and maybe I'll even buy you a glass of milk :o)

      amazing post Emily, makes me wonder where will Postopolis end up next?

      But the student/academic account of the event makes me feel like I was actually a part of it all. Very engaging. Thanks everyone!

      Hey fellow school blogger! I wish I could've come, but a boston to LA trip doesn't work out for my studio instructor. :) Thanks for keeping up the postopolis posts!
