forgot one...

Mason's Hall in Glendora, CA - just like 1959. Let's do the time warp all over again.

If I had the moola I would live here

The place was emaculate when I went on the SCAL Arch Historians tour over 10 years ago.

Green roofs in L.A.

I think it would be great to organize a tour of green roofs in L.A. from the late 50's and 60's. Wilshire tower on Irolo off Wilshire would be one. Any others that anyone has any thoughts on? I am sure there is more than one.

From the SGV

It looks flat all the way around... the same houses staying on the market again and again and day after day. A few interesting opportunities out there for fixer upper's.

Perhaps the ones that are selling are offering creative opportunities. What they are I don't know?

MCM Home Sales: Hot or Cold

How are MCM sales compared to traditional housing during what has been a really challenging time for home sales? Picking up, flat, everyone wants a new home for cheap? What's the beat on the street for MCM? Historic homes are for lookie loo's who want a peek only?

Just curious...

RIP John Hughes - director

Remember Ferris Bueller's Day Off... he put Mid Century Modern in Chicagoland on the map. You, too, can own the house at a cool $2.3 million. It does not include the 1961 Ferrari in the sale.

370 Beech Street in Highland Park, Illinois, Any one seen or been in this house?

WoW!

What a man who made images classically cool and made mid Century architecture go up in price based upon capturing a strong sense of cool and hip. Amen to that!

great site

I wanted so badly to see the Philip J. Glass House, as I live in one 2, that I rode with my friend who was moving from Oregon to New Canaan, CT. It was worth the journey. Saw of a few of these winners when we made it. This puts it into perspective.

Thanks for getting me out of bed and back to work!

Been a bit under the weather and some surgery, and finally able to at least get on-line. I never thought I would be unable for 3 weeks not to get on-line. There are so many threatened modernist landscapes in L.A. I can't even count. Ambassador College by G. Eckbo who eventually became a principal of...

Great to know.

Very steep drive - very much, so you will really be on an island in the sky.

South Pasadena - Smith & Williams, island in the sky

Nicely re-energized. I like the living room interior with the amazing vantage point and views to forever. The owner was going to do some renovation, but I said why not learn more about the architects. Hence, I think that it shows they got something good from it all. Plus you get some really great pl...

There was this one day... I was at band camp...

And surprising enough while I was at my meeting today I thought I was seeing things. Thanks to Nichols, I wasn't! It was a parade of Gary Baseman costumes being carted down Washington, and I now know why. It was pretty weird watching the parade go by on clothing racks and many heads with big eyes be...
