Lectures and House Tours
Los Angeles is a treasure trove of modern residential architecture. The Case Study Houses made LA a Modernist mecca. Adventurous clients and experimental architects created numerous unique and world-famous houses. This two-day lecture and tour program offers a variety of perspectives about the current state of 20th-century house museums in Southern California. Talks by distinguished architects, architectural historians, NGOs, owners, directors, conservation architects, and curators will bring insights from different disciplines in this emerging museum specialisation. Each day will conclude with an exclusive tour to several iconic private houses that are not usually open to the public."
