Would Works Artisans are Artists in Residence at Lehrer Architects LA!

We're thrilled to announce our October residency at Lehrer Architects LA in Silver Lake.  

We are holding work sessions in the firm's workshop (or RaD Room) with eight women from the Downtown Women's Center on Mondays and Wednesdays this month. 

Committed both to designing dignified housing solutions for people experiencing homelessness in LA and to fostering a hands-on creative culture through their Artist in Residence Program, Lehrer Architects LA is perfectly aligned with Would Works' mission.

Lehrer's approach to design grows out of deep love and respect for the community and unwavering focus on its improvement.  They are currently working on designing new solutions to permanent supportive housing through the Rethink Housing Initiative. They also have a broad portfolio of supportive housing projects which all focus on creating sustainable, healthy and dignified environments to empower residents with a feeling of stability and well-being.  

Inspired by the professional design atmosphere and the eclectic beauty of spalted sycamore, our Artisans are having fun with the LA City Blocks they are sanding.
