By now most of you have gone on bungalow, craftsman and even mansion tours in Pasadena. But I'm willing to bet most of you have not yet gone on a more modern house tour of Pasadena. As part of Pacific Standard Time celebrating LA's more modern architecture, the Pasadena Heritage is giving us the opportunity to visit 9 buildings that showcase this type of architecture. Some of these buildings will be private homes, so this might be your only chance to visit them in your lifetime.
Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. celebrates the city's modern architectural heritage through thematic exhibitions at nine venues in and around the city. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Modern Architecture in L.A. provides a wide-ranging look at the region's postwar built environment and the contributions of Los Angeles architects to the field. By examining a range of building types, from iconic modernist homes to the vast freeway network that has shaped this unique megalopolis, the exhibitions promise new insight into the city's planning, development and global impact. The initiatives includes a diverse group of practitioners, from internationally-known figures such as Richard Neutra and Frank Gehry, to others who have been critical to shaping Southern California's distinctive profile, such as A. Quincy Jones and Eric Owen Moss. Related lectures, films, tours and discussions will be organized by the exhibition venues and other participating organizations from April-July 2013, exploring the history of L.A.'s development as well as its future. Designed to continue the momentum and collaborative spirit of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. [masked], Modern Architecture in L.A. is the first of the smaller-scale Pacific Standard Time Presents offerings.
