I received an e-mail in my inbox today from a good friend of mine, who is a big supporter of local architecture, reminding me that the month of October is Architecture Month in Los Angeles. Los Angeles architecture has long been overlooked when compared with historical cities such as Boston, Philadelphia, and New York City. Los Angeles does have a great selection of architecture and doesn't get the credit it deserves.
In 2007 the city of Los Angeles officially declared the month of October Architecture Month to bring the professional community together and bring awareness to its local architecture. While the Midwest may have more Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, we have Frank Gehry, Eric Owen Moss, and Greene & Greene. To celebrate Architecture Month, The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Los Angeles chapter is holding events throughout the month. Check out AIA Los Angeles for a list of events.
