Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in LA

While Los Angeles’ modern residential architecture is world renowned, the innovative nature of its infrastructure and urban planning, commercial and civic buildings, housing experiments, and other architectural forms is less well-known. Initiated by the Getty, Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in LA, comprising 11 exhibitions and a range of accompanying events in and around the city, celebrates precisely this. Taking a wide-ranging look at the region’s modern architectural heritage, as well as the significant contributions of LA architects to national and global developments, it examines a diverse group of practitioners, from internationally known figures such as Richard Neutra and Frank Gehry, to others who have helped shape Southern California’s distinctive profile, such as A. Quincy Jones and Eric Owen Moss. 

Seventeen cultural institutions in and around Los Angeles, April–July 2013.
