Emergency State: First Responder and Law Enforcement Training Architecture
2004


In collaboration with the Center for Land Use Interpretation.


Emergency State: First Responder and Law Enforcement Training Architecture was on display at the CLUI Los Angeles Exhibition Hall this summer. The exhibit, about police and emergency training structures, featured images taken by CLUI photographers depicting ten representative locations in Southern California. As with several recent exhibits at the Center, this was a digitally created and displayed production, with each of the sites described on a LCD or projection screen, along with printed text panels, enhanced by video and ambient sound.


Southern California’s training villages and emergency props range from the typical to the state of the art, as one would imagine they might in this place where movies are made and theme parks originated. The training sites depicted in this exhibit showed different characteristics of this unusual form of architecture, a form which is increasing in its sophistication and occurrence across the country, as this era of preparedness progresses.
