Architect Shares His View of Laguna’s Direction
Laguna Beach architect Anders Lasater will speak March 1 at the lunchtime meeting of the Laguna Beach Exchange Club, which will meet at Mandarin King restaurant, 1224 N. Coast Highway.
“Whither Laguna Beach?” will be the title of Lasater’s talk about the unique space that Laguna Beach occupies in the world. Says Lasater, “Laguna is a product of its edges and limits. Edges are places where interesting things happen and limits are the containers that focus creation.”
Lasater, on the board of the American Institute of Architects and a Certified Green Building Professional, worked for 10 years as managing associate for Mark Singer Architects before striking off on his own in 2005.
The cost for non-members to attend the meeting is $20 and it includes an excellent lunch.
The identities of other upcoming Exchange Club speakers can be found at LagunaBeachExchangeClub.org
