Venice Eclectic: Modern Architecture from the 1970s and ’80s Los Angeles Conservancy Tour and Architect Panel
Experience modern architecture in Venice, one of the most truly eclectic communities in Los Angeles.
Affordable land, a culture of creativity, and an open-minded community made Venice of the 1970s and ’80s the right place and the right time for experimental young architects to cut their teeth on new designs using unorthodox materials in limited spaces. The result is an impressive collection of surprising, whimsical, and innovative modern structures, often in collaboration with artists, by architectural greats like Frederick Fisher, Frank Gehry, Steven Ehrlich, Frank Israel, and many others.
Three of the architects featured on the tour will participate in a panel discussion. Steven Ehrlich, Frederick Fisher, and Brian Murphy will discuss the work they were doing during the ‘70s and ‘80s in Venice, in a conversation moderated by Daniel Paul, Senior Architectural Historian at ICF. Tourgoers are encouraged to attend this 45-minute panel discussion at the Westminster Avenue Elementary School Auditorium at 1:30 p.m., free with purchase of a tour ticket.
