Hayworth Avenue Dingbats

An entire street full of intact dingbats is a rare and special thing indeed, making Hollywood's wonderful 1956-1965 dingbat cluster on Hayworth Avenue a must-see.

Herman Miller Showroom

Charles and Ray Eames designed only a small number of buildings, and even fewer were ever built. One of the few remaining is the Herman Miller Showroom on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood.

Kona Kai Apartments

Rosemead Boulevard, from Pasadena to Pico Rivera and beyond, contains an unusually intact assortment of exuberant architectural styles including the Kona Kai, in San Gabriel, which falls right in line as a proud example of midcentury Tiki tradition.
