October is Architecture Month, What's Your Favorite LA Building?
Spanish, Colonial, Mid-Century Modern, Craftsman, Streamline Moderne, Art Deco...Los Angeles is packed end to end with architecture reflective of so many different styles. Sometimes we pause to celebrate a building, its design, and designers only when it reaches a milestone or when we say goodbye to it. But this month the American Institute of Architects: Los Angeles (AIA) wants to encourage all of us to celebrate architecture for all 31 days of October.
This month was proclaimed "Architecture Month" two years ago by City Councilman Tom LaBonge and the City Council along with the AIA. "Architecture Month celebrates the built environment and inspires to bring a greater awareness of the importance of architecture and design to the community-at-large." After the jump, check out a calendar of events going on all over LA that focus on architecture.
Since we're in the celebratory mood, tell us in the comments what your favorite building in Los Angeles is.
