A+D Museum Presents Stephen H. Kanner FAIA Retrospective Exhibition

A retrospective exhibition honoring Stephen H. Kanner FAIA, Founder and President of the A+D Architecture and Design Museum > Los Angeles and the work of Kanner Architects. Open November 4, 2010 – January 16, 2011.

A third generation architect and principal of Kanner Architects, Stephen was a native Angeleno known for his reinterpretation of Southern California modernism and for his unique imprint on LA’s urban landscape. His contributions to the Los Angeles built environment reach from Santa Monica to East Los Angeles, as his firm completed more than 150 projects throughout the city under his leadership. In addition, Kanner earned national and international recognition with residential projects around the world and, most notably, PUMA retail stores worldwide.

Stephen Kanner’s passion for architecture extended beyond his practice. In 2005, Kanner served as president of AIA Los Angeles, as well as serving six years on the Westwood Design Review Board. One of Stephen’s proudest community accomplishments was co-founding the Architecture and Design Museum > Los Angeles. He envisioned a museum dedicated to progressive architecture and design, celebrating not only the design breakthroughs of the city but also the accomplishments of the national and international design scenes.

Renewed support from the international community ensures the future of A+D through the establishment of the >Stephen Kanner Memorial Fund.

The memorial service and retrospective opening will be held on November 4, 2010 at the A+D Museum. An A+D Members preview will be held from 6:00 – 7:00 pm and the memorial and opening reception will begin at 7:00PM.
