The MAK Center explores the intersection between architecture and other visual arts in Los Angeles during the 1970s.  Reframing architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous quip, “Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles,” the exhibition takes a closer look at a generation of architects and artists who began to share workspaces, neighborhoods, and institutions, forging new creative ground by adopting each other’s practices.
