Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Hop on a bus at the Sheraton and travel through Pasadena to Los Angeles' trendy Silver Lake neighborhood passing by Richard Neutra’s former offices and several Neutra residences in the area. We will drive to the hip Los Feliz area of Los Angeles for a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last and largest Mayan-inspired textile-block house, the Ennis House, 1924 (privately owned). After the Ennis House, we will visit Rudolph Schindler’s personal “live-work space,” 1922, now the MAK Center).  The tour will be accompanied by Chris Nichols, cultural aficionado, local historian, chairman emeritus of the Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee, and author of Los Angeles Magazine's "Ask Chris" column. Chris will provide expert knowledge about local history and sites. The bus will arrive back at the Sheraton Hotel at 1:00.
