MAK Architecture Tour 2007

  • Tour
Greater Los Angeles

The tour focused on the career of Archibald Quincy Jones (1913-1979), a prolific Los Angeles-based architect and educator known for innovative modernist buildings and pioneering work in urban design. The tour featured Jones’s work on the groundbreaking cooperative community built for the Mutual Housing Association (MHA) in the Crestwood Hills area of Brentwood from 1946-1950. In a rare opportunity, seven different MHA models were opened for the tour, as well as Jones’ first work, his own home and studio in Laurel Canyon (1938, in partnership with Ruth Schneider), and the St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church (1962) in Studio City. In addition, the tour featured The Lohrie House (Rodney Walker, 1947) and The Bernheim House (Ray Kappe, 1961).
