Pasadena 1940 Forward
Pasadena Heritage will offer unique programs this spring as part of Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A., a Getty-initiated celebration of the city’s modern architectural heritage through exhibitions and programs at cultural institutions in and around L.A. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Modern Architecture in L.A. is a wide-ranging look at the postwar built environment of the city as a whole, from its famous residential architecture to its vast freeway network, revealing the city’s development and ongoing impact in new ways.
On May 16, 2013, as part of this initiative, Pasadena Heritage will present Pasadena 1940 Forward: Three Views of the Recent Past, featuring presentations and discussion by three noted architectural historians.
Pasadena 1940 Forward: Residential Architecture of the Recent Past is a drive-yourself tour of 6 exceptional Modern-era homes in the Pasadena area. Experienced docents will lead tours through each featured private home, providing guests with a multi-faceted exploration of the work of several distinguished architects. The tour will take place on Sunday, May 19, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
