About the Panel
Frances Anderton is the Executive Producer and Host of KCRW's DnA: Design and Architecture, an exploration of who and what matters in our designed world – on radio and online. For many years she produced KCRW's award-winning national and local current affairs show, To The Point, and Which Way, LA?, hosted by Warren Olney. Ms. Anderton is a frequent public speaker and writer on architecture and design. She has served as LA correspondent for Dwell and the New York Times.

Annie Chu is a founding principal of the award winning CHU+GOODING Architects in Los Angeles with a deep portfolio of interior architecture projects focusing on arts/culture and higher education clients, including arts and non-profit organizations such as Southern California Public Radio, MOCA, Hammer Museum, The Getty Center, Kentucky Museum of Art + Craft, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association in Disney Hall. A good part of her firm's reputation is with high-profile residential clients. These projects include significant bespoke interiors where a world class level of design response and sophisticated execution is applied to art, decorative objects, furnishings, materials, color, lighting, acoustics and the integration of state-of-the-art technologies.

Lisa Gimmy came into landscape architecture with an extensive background in art history, and interest in art and architecture continue to be the basis for her work in landscape design. Since she founded her firm (Lisa Gimmy Landscape Architecture) in 1992, she has directed the design of landscapes for campuses, schools, hotels, mixed-use commercial developments, and many private gardens. Ms. Gimmy's work has been recognized with awards of excellence, and her projects have been published in numerous magazines, including The New York Times, Landscape Architecture Magazine, Metropolitan Home and Los Angeles Magazine.

Kay Kollar has approached design through the lens of her architectural education from Cooper Union, with the primary focus of her work in residential interior design. She seeks to cultivate with every client an authentic language of design which transcends the narrow bands of style in order to create a uniquely personal portraiture remarkable to each project, expressed through the selection of color, materials, furniture and objects. As an interior designer, Kay gives voice to the intangible, intuitive, poetic and practical; enhancing the sense of place within an architecture so that those living inside might feel a belonging. Kollar’s live/work space has been featured in the LA Times Sunday Magazine and on HGTV.
