    If you don't know the name Eric Owen Moss, you may know one of his Culver City buildings.

    Perhaps the "Stealth" -- a bold, geometric office building on Hayden at National -- or the Glass Tower, at La Cienega and Jefferson.

    Moss, the principal of Eric Owen Moss Architects and director of SCI-Arc (the Southern California Institute of Architecture) is widely recognized for helping to revitalize a once-defunct industrial tract in Culver City that's now part of the area's bustling core.

    Moss's work is now the subject of a book, the "Eric Owen Moss Construction Manual, 1988-2008," featuring 40 projects from his firm, which he founded in 1973.

    To celebrate the publication, SCI-Arc will host Moss, in conversation with KCRW's "DnA: Design and Architecture" host Frances Anderton, on Wednesday night. The lecture will be followed by a book signing and reception.

    Culver City-curious? Architecture buff? This event is for you.

    If you buy a copy of the book while you're there, you'll get 10% off.

    Wednesday, December 9, 7pm, W.M. Keck Lecture Hall, Southern California Institute of Architecture.
