‘Breaking Ground: Chinese American Architects in Los Angeles (1945 – 1980)’

Over the weekend, I happened to watch ‘Tsou LA’, a local Mandarin TV program, introducing the exhibit ‘Breaking Ground: Chinese American Architects in Los Angeles (1945 – 1980)‘ at Chinese American Museum.

I was surprised to find some major landmarks such as LAX were designed by Chinese American Architects. One of four architects was a female. Architect Helen Liu Fong. She designed many restaurants and coffee shops including Norms Restaurants. Here is an article in L.A. Time about Helen Liu Fong when she passed away in 2005: http://articles.latimes.com/2005/apr/26/local/me-fong26.

As an Asian designer and a Los Angeles resident, I am going to see the exhibit before it closes. How am I going to get there? Metro! Of course!
