An exploration of place 
through memory,
history, and scent.


DTLA and The Row

After the departure of American Apparel, the Alameda warehouses were converted into mixed-use commercial and creative office space. The Produce Market still operates in its original location on the site, serving as a commercial hub for the city.
The Row is a 30-acre campus of retail and creative space, designed by Rios Clementi Hale Architects. The project harnesses the exisisting character of the site- raw concrete, rough finishes, and otherwise industrial materials- and is home to over 100 retail spaces in addition to creative office space above.

The Row is utilized by the design community in Los Angeles for projects like the LA Design Festival, but also as a showcase for holiday craft fairs and other collective activities.


On the other side of the compound, the Terminal Produce Market is still thriving. It is a major hub for produce, Monday through Friday from 3 am to 10 am.

On Saturdays, the market turns into an open-air food fair called Smorgasburg.



This workshop will take place the week of the LA Design Festival. 

If you would like to participate, please stop by the Scent Bar at The Row that week!
