Featuring exceptional modern/contemporary design, the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles (AIA|LA) Home Tours are a favorite of mine.  The just-announced upcoming Spring tour on April 1 is no exception.

Highlighting five homes in Mar Vista, the tour will open homes designed by highly acclaimed architects including Neil M. Denari, Santiago Ortiz, Douglas V. Pierson, Richard Seltzer and the powerhouse team of Frank Escher and Ravi GuneWardena. Denari’s widely published Alan Voo House alone should be worth the price of admission.

The Getty-spearheaded region-wide art celebration, Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, officially begins this October, and for the event, the entire living room of the Eames House, aka Case Study #8, is being reconstructed inside the Resnick Pavilion at LACMA. The living room (seen above) will be a part of LACMA's ‘California Design, 1930-1965: "Living in a Modern Way"’ exhibit.
