LUFites hangin’ with MAK Insitute Fellow

Here are some images taken on Wednesday evening at an intimate dinner for visiting MAK Institute Fellow Efrén Santana. Santana who hails from Venezuela will be in Los Angeles for the next two months researching (and contrasting) how Latinos shape Los Angeles through the physical and social interactions with the city-region.

On hand were various colleagues from the MAK Institute, and other notable activists, researchers, architects, and artists whose work focuses on the built environment. The dinner took place at the beautiful Leland House (designed by R.M. Schindler) situated atop the Hollywood Hills. Guests were treated to an excellent dinner, wine, kick ass coffee, great conversations on the city-region, and just a plain ole’ good vibe. Nobody jumped in the pool though. Various LUFites will be showing Santana around the city over the next two months...including the quintessential trip to the criminalized taco trucks in East L.A.
