Critical Infrastructures: Center for Land Use Interpretation

Critical Infrastructures: Center for Land Use Interpretation from The Architecture Foundation on Vimeo.

Matthew Coolidge, Center for Land Use Interpretation (Los Angeles), in conversation. Chaired by Owen Hatherley, writer and journalist; author, A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain.

The Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) is a research and education organization based in Los Angeles, interested in understanding the nature and extent of human interaction with the earth’s surface, and in finding new meanings in the intentional and incidental forms that we individually and collectively create. We believe that the manmade landscape is a cultural inscription, that can be read to better understand who we are, and what we are doing. The organization was founded in 1994, and since that time it has produced dozens of exhibits on land use themes and regions, for public institutions all over the United States, as well as overseas.
