Bellevue College Interior Design Student Association (IDSA) invites you to join us in welcoming inspiring guest lecturer, Barbara Bestor.
Barbara Bestor Lecture
Monday, April 20th, 2015
Barbara Bestor, AIA is Principal of Bestor Architecture and the founding chair of the Graduate program at Woodbury University’s School of Architecture and is now the executive director of the University’s Julius Shulman Institute. Her work is dedicated to the idea that ‘everyone
should experience strange beauty everyday’. She has developed a varied, creative and aesthetically progressive body of work over the last ten years propagating the concept that Architecture can and should be a part of all aspects of our creative community.
The studio recently designed the new headquarters for Los Angeles companies Beats By Dre and Nasty Gal, and an innovative small lot housing complex in Echo Park is in construction. Currently, a variety of custom residences and commercial entities are in design. The Floating Bungalow house in Venice, CA was featured in MOCA’s 2013 survey of contemporary LA architecture.
Barbara Bestor is the author of Bohemian Modern, Living in Silver Lake (Harper Collins, 2006), a book dedicated to the suppressed narrative of informal and eccentric modernism found in Silverlake’s rich domestic architectural history. She is also a partner in Sisters of Los Angeles (SoLA), which creates design-based gifts and housewares for Los Angeles and California.

Searching for the Design Soul of Seattle: A Discussion on Modernism in Seattle
February 17 @ 6:30 pm (N-building, room 201)
What makes Seattle “Seattle?” As the city has grown from a sleepy, northwest town that few knew much about to a global name that is recognized around the world, its design has been rooted in a few core ideas. Join interior designer Steve Turner for a look at Seattle’s regional modernist past, how its manifesting itself today, and what it might tell us about our city’s design future.
Steve Turner is adjunct professor of Modern Architecture & Design at Bellevue College, and an interior designer in the Seattle area.
