One of the luxuries of being an Angelino is enjoying the geographic diversity in the Los Angeles region. From ocean to valley to urban sprawl, Los Angeles offers its population any number of excellent locations to live, work and leisure. Bordering the northern part of the City are the Hills, a fertile territory for iconic residential architecture (see past modernist case studies). The Hills demonstrate the best in collaborations between classic and contemporary design, which is why the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles has chosen the famous location for its first of two Fall Home Tours on Sunday, September 19 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. The tour will begin in the Los Feliz Hills, with its small lots and breathtaking views of Hollywood and downtown. Next you will be directed to a home off of Nichols Canyon where you can get a sense of LA Canyon living-quiet, peaceful and secluded. No tour of the Hills would be complete without a sample of glitz and glam living above the Sunset Strip. And finally the tour will take you to the historical Trousdale Estate with a smart example of modern contemporary architecture in the form of a guest house. To travel the Hills, join us for the 2010 Fall Home Tour, THE HILLS: FROM EAST TO WEST on Sunday, September 19 from 11am-4pm. The tour is self-driven, self guided, rain or shine.
