Part A, 11:00-11:45am

Preservation in L.A.:

One Building & One Neighborhood at a Time

Linda Dishman, executive director of the Los Angeles Conservancy, will address Preservation in Los Angeles.  You’ll learn first-hand how the L.A. Conservancy works to save buildings and neighborhoods from Richard Neurtra’s Kronish House in Beverly Hills, to Historic Preservation Overlay Zones in the City of Los Angeles. Linda, an extraordinary public speaker, has been at the helm of the LA Conservancy for 20+ years, and will offer a special Q&A session specially geared to realtors.

Part B, 11:45-12:30pm

John Parkinson, Architect of Los Angeles

Bullock’s Wilshire, Union Station, City Hall, the Memorial Coliseum and hundreds more buildings and homes were the work of master British architect John Parkinson, who would become LA’s most important architect

shortly after the turn of the 20th century. Other notable projects include the Homer Laughlin Building (now Grand Central Market), LA’s first skyscraper, and the master plan for the expansion of USC. More than 50 Parkinson buildings still stand in Los Angeles. Join Author Stephen Gee for a lavishly illustrated presentation from his just-published book, Iconic Vision: John Parkinson, Architect of Los Angeles to witness how this man’s genius shaped LA. Book signing immediately follows, sponsored by Angel City Press.
