Last night, the A + D Architecture + Design Museum in Los Angeles, held its annual fund-raising gala. In honor of this year’s theme, “The Journey”, the museum enlisted dozens of architects to tackle the problem of the carry-on bag—specifically, its failure to surprise, delight, or be shaped like a baguette.

At the gala,  models wearing airline uniforms have demo-ed dozens of one-of-a-kind carry-ons designed by the likes of April Greiman and Michael Rotondi, Lorcan O’herlihy, Yadzani Studio, Gensler, AECOM, and many more. Each bag was up for bid in the museum’s silent auction, which benefited its operations.

The auction also featured artworks, architectural memorabilia (including a signed lithograph of the Getty Center by Richard Meier), and a weekend getaway to Marfa.
