by Carren Jao Situated at the cross-section of architecture, art, and installation, Los Angeles–based architectural practice Layer has consistently managed to delight and surprise. Complex yet not intimidating, their work has graced experimental spaces and museums alike across Southern California, engaging visitors to see the space they inhabit in a new light. Founded in 2009 by Emily White and Lisa Little—both graduates of Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc)—Layer is unusual in that two women head up the firm, but according to the two, that only makes the venture more interesting. We chatted with White and Little to ask about their beginnings, unique challenges and what else we can look forward to from the firm.
