Self Realization Fellowship

This Glendale church has a breathtaking conical roof supported by large curved beams of laminated wood, with a massive stained-glass window covering most of the front of the building.

Sepulveda Rose

This understated post-and-beam apartment complex is a very graceful application of the Mid-Century Modern post-and-beam idiom to a large-scale building, and deserves notice among Dorman’s higher-profile works.

Sheats Apartments

Completed in 1949, the building was designed by master architect John Lautner as eight units of student housing. Asymmetrically arranged shapes, from circular volumes to long, flat planes, step up the hill and around each other to form a strangely harmonious, abstractly futuristic, and truly organic-feeling whole.

Sinai Temple

Sinai Temple is a magnificent statement in Expressionist design by architect Sidney Eisenshtat, a graduate of USC’s School of Architecture and student of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Spanner Residence

Completed in 1968, this two-story Rex Lotery-designed house is more explicitly vertical than many Modern designs, adapting to a comparatively small lot on a sloping hillside with an irregular plan and multiple levels.
