Sister community event: “SILVER LAKE MODERNISM – THEN AND NOW”


Tour of historic and new Modernist homes set for Sept. 30

Following in the tradition of two previous sold-out events, “Silver Lake Modernism – Then and Now” will feature tours of a collection of Modernist works in hip, historic Silver Lake on Saturday, September 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  At least ten homes will be showcased, including both vintage works by Modernist masters as well as examples of recent designs by a new generation of architects who have embraced the principles, aesthetics and techniques of the 20th Century Modernist movement. 

This year’s tour will feature pioneering works by Modernist masters Rodney Walker (the O’Neill Complex), Richard Neutra (the Flavin Residence), Gregory Ain (the Avenel Cooperative), Rudolph Schindler (at least two of the Bubeshko Apartments), Raphael Soriano (the Meyers Residence), Harwell Hamilton Harris (the Hansen Residence) and Edward Fickett (the Jacobson Residence).  It will also introduce several works by contemporary architects, including Barbara Bestor, Ana Henton and John Southern, who have been inspired by Modernist designs and techniques and have incorporated them into their recent local work. All sites will be open for interior viewing, and shuttle buses will be available to transport tour goers between the sites.
