Have you ever wondered “Why SCI-Arc?” Let us tell you. From deeply engaged students to enthusiastic faculty, SCI-Arc is a community passionate about learning and pushing the boundaries of architecture into new territories.
The SCI-Arc Media Archive is a continuously-expanding online showcase with over 1000 hours of video, featuring the world’s most significant architects, designers, and theorists—including 11 Pritzker Prize winners—from 1972 to now, offered to the public unedited, for students, scholars and anybody with an interest in architecture, Los Angeles and experimental design.
From the beginning, SCI-Arc has actively engaged the community with public programs, including a lecture series, which started in 1974 and still happens Wednesday nights. Most of these videos document public events held at SCI-Arc. Support for the Media Archive was provided by The Getty Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
