The design proposal for the Painted Brain’s home is to be in the creative Arts District in downtown Los Angeles. The future magazine will need a start of the art identity that can lyrically announce a contemporary public voice. The future spaces shall interweave art direction, magazine management, media-design, editors, patrons, and publication production. The Painted Brain, located on 1335 Willow Street, Los Angeles, CA, is a non-profit organization that runs their magazine, holds meetings, and offers a space for young adults experiencing mental illnesses to come and express themselves creatively through art, poetry, music, and photography. Recognizing the importance of all the related activities going on in this one space, this embryological design suggests a way to reprogram the existing interior by increasing The Painted Brain’s square footage by an additional second level. The flexible, translucent “synaptic “membrane façade and sliding doors are emerged into an ever-present active coding device that reinstates the serial involvements of back stage hidden movements. Where there was no conjunctive facade before, the new entry threshold inscribes a visual separation and registration between the Painted Brain and their neighbors. The trans-formative apparatus allows natural sunlight harvesting into a secure space while incorporating the necessary control over their privacy.

  1. 1. The PAINTED BRAIN DESIGN MODEL: AD (ARTS DISTRICT) Lydia Chan / Rob Mothershed PURPOSE The design proposal for the Painted Brain’s home is to be in the creative Arts District in downtown Los Angeles. The fu- ture magazine will need a start of the art identity that can lyrically announce a contemporary public voice. The future spaces shall interweave art direction, magazine management, media-design, edi- tors, patrons, and publication production. The Painted Brain, located on 1335 Willow Street, Los Angeles, CA, is a non-profit organization that runs their magazine, holds meetings, and offers a space for young adults experiencing mental ill- nesses to come and express themselves creatively through art, poetry, music, andThe PAINTED BRAIN photography. Recognizing the importance of all the related activities going on in this one space, this embryological designDESIGN MODEL: AD (ARTS DISTRICT) suggests a way to reprogram the existing interior by increasing The Painted Brain’s square footage by an additional secondLydia Chan / Rob Mothershed level. The flexible, translucent “synap- tic “membrane façade and sliding doors are emerged into an ever-present active coding device that reinstates the serial involvements of back stage hidden move- ments.

INSTRUMENTAL OPERATIONSThe ground floor programmatically functionsas a open meeting space during normal hours.During creative hours, it can be used for indi-vidual or group music sessions (guitar, piano,and drum set) and for painting, drawing, sculpt-ing, etc. The Caterpillar® table can split intomultiple sections and become 5 separate tablesfor hosting artwork activities. It then can alsobe re-assembled into one long conference tablefor conference meetings. At the far back wallof the space is a large interactive “smart “ wallthat serves a complex variety of uses such asinteractive magazine editing, displaying sub-mitted artwork, featured web-casts, or playingeducational movies. In that immediate zone aredurable counters and drop down shelves act asstorage space for all their needs. A stepladderleads up to the mezzanine where founder andeditor Dave Leon’s office and space for internsare co-located with additional storage units.
