This month, the renowned Los Angeles architect, Thom Mayne, joins Peter Cook in this special afternoon instalment of Store Street. Thom Mayne helped found the Southern California Institute of Architecture and has held numerous teaching positions including Columbia, Harvard, Yale, The Bartlett and most recently, UCLA. Mayne, the so-called angry young man of Los Angeles architecture, will present some of his most recent work and talk with Peter Cook about complex architecture, the new era of architectural experimentation and building (at last count) three aggressively modern buildings for the United States government. Mayne was the recipient of the Pritzker Prize in 2005.
