Bryn Davidson, Jorge Siemsen, Oliver Neumann + Cristian Schmitt, and Simon Montgomery were each given a thematic word to reinterpret and lighting packages to incorporate into their projects, and were assigned site-specific areas within the Woodwards Atrium. Other than that, they have complete freedom over their projects. The designers were given three months to create their pieces and have two days to install them in the Atrium. Then on the evening of Oct. 3, the results will be on display for the public to interact with and experience.</p> <p> <br> You can click <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a> to purchase tickets, watch interviews with the designers, and more.</p> Architects, artists create lights for MAK Center auction Archinect 2012-11-08T17:34:00-05:00 >2014-01-06T03:29:46-05:00 <img srcset=" 1x, 2x, 3x" src="" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Some of L.A.&rsquo;s best known architecture firms and artists have designed one-of-a-kind lamps to be auctioned Nov. 2 at a fund-raiser for the MAK Center in West Hollywood.
