Hosted by MAK Center, the Fall Architecture Tour offered a close-up look at nine architecturally significant private residences built between 1934 and 1953 in Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Mount Washington.

One highlight on the tour was Echo Park’s Jules Salkin House, aka the “long lost Lautner” built for the co-founder of Brentwood’s celebrated Mutual Housing Association. The tour also included visits to homes by Raphael Soriano, Harwell Hamilton Harris, RM Schindler, Gregory Ain, and James DeLong. Each of the featured architects started their careers working for Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and/or Rudolph Schindler (both of whom also worked for Wright).
