In the Weeds 

Landscape installations by Missy Ablin + Allen Gillers
Spencer's Art House
520 University Ave.
Sat. 5:30 - 7 pm; Panel Discussion at 6 pm

In The Weeds is a landscape installation by Missy Ablin + Allen Gillers and public conversation on the grounds of Spencer's Art House. Through playful use of form, color and optical patterning, the installation offers the potential to look anew at the whimsy and beauty that grows admits the weeds. In The Weeds hosts a panel discussion between academics, designers, and representatives from local government, law enforcement, and community organizations for a public conversation about community oriented art and design practices, and the publics these practices engage.

Recently I coauthored an article for the American Institute of Architects Young Architects Forum magazine Connection. As a member of the YAF I speak out on behalf of young architects from my home region of Michigan and act as a conduit for all young architects at the National level of the American Institute of Architects.

Below is a series of slides from a presentation I prepared describing how LEED for Neighborhood Development would work in Downtown Los Angeles. During my Graduate Studies I was learning ArcGIS software to develop and overlay patterns of LEED criteria exposing areas of Los Angeles that would work as far as sustainable urban development according to LEED.
