Laura's tour of Silver Lake's modern architecture was a highlight of my recent trip to L.A. I stumbled onto her Architecture Tours L.A. website and am so glad I did! In about two hours we visited a series of important houses designed by Richard Neutra, Rudolf Schindler, John Lautner, Gregory Ain, Lloyd Wright, Jr. and others. Laura is a font... More

She shares both fun facts as well as deep insights about LA and takes participants to parts of LA you'd never think to look at or wonder about otherwise. I learned a... More

Before this tour, my wife and I had a superficial interest in what we have since learned is Mid Century architecture. The closest we got to Lautner, Neutra, Schindler and Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. was Wikipedia and dreaming of entertaining our friends at something like Pierre Koenig's Stahl House. Seeing the impressive Silverlake works of art, up close with our... More

Laura takes you on a wonderful adventure exploring Frank Gehry's work around LA. She's a knowledgeable and engaging guide with interesting insights on the history and design of Gehry's residential and commercial buildings. Her training as an architectural historian makes this a great experience for both architecture buffs and professionals alike.

Laura was personable and fun. I appreciated the historical context Laura put into her descriptions of the buildings and neighborhoods we toured as well as her attempts to make the tour as engaging and interesting for my teen daughter as it was for me. Thanks, Laura.

We booked a special, custom made tour with Laura which included examples of modernist architecture by Pierre Koenig and also a rare 'inside' visit to a very famous John Lautner building. Being fans of Californian modernist architecture we were blown away by the buildings we saw and to be able to walk through a John Lautner masterpiece was truly something.... More

It was one of the best architectural experiences in my life. Laura showed me all the most interesting and iconic houses around Silver Lake. Her knowledge is really impressing, she know all about houses, architects, anecdotes. I will strongly recommend it to everyone who is even slightly interested in modernism.

This tour was a truly delightful end to a wonderful weekend celebration in LA. Laura was the perfect tour guide - knowledgeable, interesting and cool. The combination of driving and walking was perfect. We will be back to check out the other tours in the future for sure.
