Join MODA for a special event at Switch Modern.

Designer Lawrence Azerrad will discuss what made Concorde the single most important piece of design in our recent history. Listen to how Lawrence’s obsession with Concorde began as a child and his ever-growing collection of Concorde memorabilia now encompasses around seven hundred items and has now manifested itself into a new book, Supersonic, The Design and Lifestyle of Concorde, published by Prestel.

Lawrence will also talk about his Grammy Award-winning boxed set The Voyager Golden Record 40th Anniversary Edition which commemorates the interstellar message launched on the Voyager spacecraft, now almost 11.5 billion miles away.

This lecture is free, but seating is limited, so please reserve your place in advance. Parking is limited and we encourage you to use ride share services.

About Lawrence Azzerad

Graphic designer Lawrence Azerrad, a native of Los Angeles, grew up drawing pictures and fighting the inferiority complex that comes with being a “normal” in the city of stars. Since then he’s designed iconic album covers like Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, won a Grammy for the Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition box set, and authored & designed a book, Supersonic, about the fabulous style of Concorde. Turns out having his head in the clouds, playing amongst the stars, is right where he belongs.
