Experience Los Angeles’ modern architecture with Gensler’s art and cultural expert Steve Hoard. Our small group starts with a tour the Schindler House, the birthplace of Southern California modernism showing a radical integration of interior and exterior spaces. Dine at Los Angeles Arts District’s newest restaurant – Manuela. Go behind the scenes at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels – a dynamic, contemporary Cathedral with virtually no right angles. You will not want to miss this experience so make your reservations today.

More about the Schindler House and Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

The Schindler House incorporates both architectural and social theory. It unfolds formally, spatially and intellectually with coherence unparalleled in early modern architecture. Schindler called his special form of modern architecture “Space architecture,” which blurs the boundaries between indoors and out.

What historically took centuries to construct was accomplished in three years in the building of the 11-story Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. Spanish architect, José Rafael Moneo wanted a public space and also a private place that gives people what they seek when they go to church. This geometry contributes to the Cathedral’s feeling of mystery and its aura of majesty.
