A One-Night Stand for Art & Architecture (One-Night Stand LA) was a non-profit event and publication project from 2015 - 2018 by a group of emerging architects and artists exploring different forms of media, but also new possibilities for strategies of subversion. The Los Angeles based event was initiated as a means for fostering the emerging creative eruptions in the disciplines of art and architecture. The group used motel rooms for one night, and one night only to exhibit work.

Each participant was given one entire room to display their work for one night only. A detailed set of model plan drawings was used to help create site-specific work within each room. Participants were able to build armatures and prefabricated walls as long as they caused no damage to the room itself.
