Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A.
April–July 2013

Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. will provide a wide-ranging look at the region’s modern architectural heritage, as well as the significant contributions of L.A. architects to national and global developments in architecture. It will examine a broad array of practitioners, from pioneering modernists like Richard Neutra to Pritzker Prize winners such as Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne, as well as other visionary architects who have shaped the region’s distinctive profile, including A. Quincy Jones, Whitney Rowland Smith and Eric Owen Moss. Exhibitions and related programming will explore a range of building types, from iconic modernist homes and civic landmarks such as Disney Hall, to the whimsical coffee shops and vast freeway networks that made Los Angeles the unique megalopolis it is today.
