Creating Place Panel Discussion

On March 24th, IIDA LA will be hosting a panel discussion event on the topic of “Creating Place”.  As interior designers, we are tasked with “creating place” for our clients. We have a “toolbox” from which we draw elements to create places with specific functions and feelings. How do others in similar disciplines create place? What can we learn from them?

The LA City Center is thrilled to host the following panelists:

IIDA_LAPanel_Erica

Erica Gibson, Senior Art Director, Bottega Louie

Los Angeles-based designer Erica Gibson is the senior art director for Bottega Louie. Erica received her BA in Communication Arts from OTIS College of Art and Design in 2009, after which she traveled to Italy and Amsterdam for design residencies. Prior to her work with Bottega Louie, Erica held design positions at Joe’s Jeans and Clare Vivier. She produces work as an illustrator and painter and has exhibited in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. Most recently, Erica has been featured as a guest lecturer at OTIS and Art Center, and won the Judge’s Choice award at Adobe Creative Jams’ Los Angeles event.

IIDA_LAPanel_Ellen

Ellen Brill, Set Decorator, American Horror Story

After many years in the fashion business, Ellen Brill enrolled in the UCLA Interior Design Program. During the four-year program, she worked with several interior designers, shopping and learning the business. Color and materials were of particular interest. After completing her studies in 1991, she interned in the art department of an independent film. Within the first week, she became the set decorator. At the completion of the film, she was presented another set decoration job. Ellen has been a set decorator on feature films and television ever since.

Ellen has been nominated for eight Emmys: The pilot episode of the hit drama 24, the pilot for comedy Arrested Development, the third season of Nip/Tuck as well as five nominations for the mini-series American Horror Story.

She has been the Set Decorator for four seasons of American Horror Story: Murder House, Asylum, Coven and Hotel. She, along with the Production Designer, won the Art Directors Guild Award for Excellence in Production Design for AHS Coven and won an ADG Award for AHS Hotel.

IIDA_LAPanel_Joe

Joe Coriaty, AIA, Partner in Charge, Frederick Fisher and Partners

For over thirty years, Joseph Coriaty has dedicated his career to creating buildings that integrate design excellence and place-making with 21st century technologies. His working process has elevated the architects’ role as “maker” and community leader.  Joe joined Frederick Fisher and Partners in 1988, and is currently the Partner-in-Charge for the firm’s academic, civic, live-work and community-oriented projects. Joe inspires team members, clients, and the community-at-large with timeless designs that are reflective, elegant, and create a strong sense of place. In each city, town, neighborhood, and design solution, Joe recognizes the instinctive need for individuals to feel a sense of belonging. His ability to incorporate key programmatic and communal elements that focuses on the client, and not the signature of the architect, is unique. This fundamental reality is often missing from the design of buildings and communities today.

While his designs do not brand themselves as “iconic”, his ability to create extraordinary buildings that reflect the site, current technologies, and community, is the kind of serious work that we need to create to make people’s lives more fulfilling through the built environment.

IIDA_LAPanel_Mark

Mark Worthington, Production Designer, American Horror Story

Mark Worthington is an Emmy Award-nominated production designer. His art director credits include all four seasons of FX Networks’ American Horror Story (2011-2015); the pilots for CBS’Battle Creek (2015) and Fox’s Backstrom (2015); USA’s Political Animals (2012); all four seasons of ABC’s Ugly Betty (2006–2010) as well as the pilots for the network’s Once Upon a Time (2011) and Lost (2004). His film credits include Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde (2003); Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002); Hearts in Atlantis (2001); Town & Country (2001); U.S. Marshals (1998); Wag the Dog (1997); The Chamber (1996) and Tombstone (1993).

Worthington is a five-time Emmy Award nominee for his work on American Horror Story and Ugly Betty. Additionally, he is a nine-time Art Directors Guild Awards nominee. He has taken home the prize three times.
