Spectacular/Vernacular: High-Style Roots of Everyday Modernism
Image
Have you ever stood in your living room and thought, “I wonder why my house has that interesting window?â€￾ or “Why does my fireplace look just like the one I saw in that Schindler house?â€￾ This fall, the Conservancy’s Modern Committee will attempt to answer these questions and more on our Spectacular/Vernacular tour. Each of the homes on the tour will illustrate some of the tangible and philosophical linkages between high-style (unique, architect-designed) modernism and everyday modernism. Focused in the San Fernando Valley, where this nexus is most clearly evident, the featured homes will be a mixture of works by the California modern masters and those by less well known architects and builders who helped bring modernism to a broader audience.

LECTURE:
Alan Hess on the Ranch House
Wednesday, October 18, 2006
7:30 p.m.
St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church (Jones & Emmons, 1962)

Was looking forward to seeing all y'all there...I've had my ticket for weeks. But something's come up and I need to go out of town. But if I'll make a deal with you tourgoers...somebody post lotsa pix of the tour, and I'll return to LA and post lotsa pix of the neglected Modernism of New Orleans. What's left of it, anyway...
