Alex Artigas is an artist, archi- tect and up and coming inte- rior designer practicing in Los Angeles. His design philosophy reflects new currents in contemporary architecture and yet his perspective is surprisingly preservative. He identifies perceived notions of modernism, speaks to what is important in that movement and what exists as something to work against. He feels, for instance, that the Spanish style architecture that is vernacular to LA is underappreciated and should be preserved.
Artigas is an architect at Sami Hayek Studios in Los Angeles. He and interior designer Sami Hayek have collaborated on a fresh new line of furniture, "California" by Junction.
"What I want to preserve is any work that has harmony or that sense of atmosphere; that sense of capturing youth but in a passive or subjective way." – Alex Artigas
