Explore Modern L.A. County
Modern architecture is in L.A.'s DNA. You'll find it everywhere, in every form, from high-end homes to gas stations.
Use our Historic Modern Places map to browse more than 300 Modern places throughout L.A. County -- and that's just the tip of the iceberg. We know there are obvious omissions, and we'll continue adding new locations. We'll also add multimedia galleries for the locations already on the map.
See our Spotlight on the San Fernando Valley for three virtual tours of Ranch Houses, hillside gems, and a cruise down Ventura Boulevard.
You can also browse sites by some major themes of Modernism, including L.A.'s car culture, technological innovations, housing for the masses, the confluence of art and architecture, and more.
