With so much ground to cover this past weekend and so many slices of LA to savor with Culture Collide, CicLAvia, Wine Fest and more going on, we knew the best way to cap it had to be a joyride away, up in the hills.

Sunday's destination was the Wright Organic Resource Center for a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Toyota Prius. Set on 24 acres with stunning views to all sides, this was an ideal setting for such a gathering, made possible partly because the winner of Toyota's Facebook contest to find the most passionate Prius owner, Martin Esquenazi, happens to live down the PCH in Redondo.

The afternoon featured a series of panels on topics such as integrating ecological material into architectural design, green tech gadgets, and sustainability in daily life. The discussions, curated by SHFT.com and Wired, were informative and inspiring, with notable speakers including the owner of the Wright Organic Resource Center, Eric Lloyd Wright, who first apprenticed under his grandfather, Frank Lloyd Wright.
