LACMA secures ‘critical’ city vote to build new campus

LOS ANGELES (LA Curbed) — The museum would be Swiss architect Peter Zumthor’s first Los Angeles project. The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously today to allow a “critical piece” of the plan to redesign the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to move ahead.

LACMA director Michael Govan urged councilmembers to support the project, telling them that the street-straddling design “allows for a new vision for […]

WeHo Reads: Architects Who Built Southern California Opens Mar 6

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Join author Antonio Gonzalez for a free event, as he tells the stories of the people behind some of Southern California’s most iconic buildings.

In the early 1900s, the population of Southern California exploded, and the cities grew at such a rapid pace that builders could hardly keep up.

Among those who settled in the area were ten architects looking to make their marks on the world. Claud Beelman, a man who never received a college degree, would go on to design the Elks Lodge in Los Angeles.

Albert C. Martin, architect of Grauman’s Million Dollar Theater, founded a company that is still going strong more than one hundred years later, and Julia Morgan, the first woman architect licensed in California, was hired by William Randolph Hearst to design the Examiner Building.

Antonio Gonzalez has a BA in journalism from the University of Iowa and an MLIS from San Jose State University. He is a member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, works in an architecture and fine arts library and has a blog where he post items related to architecture and his other interests (misterdangerous.wordpress.com).

In 2015, arts and historic preservation staff began a project of documenting all of the City’s designated historic properties.

This free exhibition shows a selection of photographs from the over 80 properties that were documented by West Hollywood photographer Tony Coelho, representing a wide array of architectural styles and associations with well-known architects and builders. These images celebrate West Hollywood – recognizing our past, present, and future.

When and Where:
Friday, March 6, 7:00 pm
Community Meeting Room at the West Hollywood Library
625 N. San Vicente Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069

  • 7-8 pm: Reading and Architecture Presentation by Antonio Gonzalez
