Hop aboard an air-conditioned motor coach and explore glass-skinned towers, fortress-like museums, and revolutionary designs on this bus tour of 1970s architecture!
The 1970s were a time of architectural experimentation in Los Angeles, a city that served as an incubator for the next wave of cutting-edge architects. In West L.A. and Beverly Hills, structures that embody the spirit and the style of the '70s can be found hiding in plain sight. Their stories tell the saga of a decade—of the new building materials, a stagnant economy necessitated of technological advances in design and computer-driven curves, and the biggest names in L.A. architecture: César Pelli, Anthony Lumsden, William Pereira, Craig Ellwood, and more.
Learn about all that the '70s has to offer from Conservancy docents both on the bus and off. Tourgoers will have the opportunity to stop at select sites to see buildings up close, including the Pacific Design Center and the George C. Page Museum (La Brea Tar Pits), among others.
