Description:

This large housing development was built between 1935 and 1942 and designed by the architect Reginald Johnson, landscape architects Fred Barlow and Katherine Bashford and urban planner Clarence Stein (the architecture firm of Wilson, Merill and Alexander was also involved). The form of the 64 acre, 627 unit residential area is based on the ideas of the "Garden City" and follows the model of previous projects like Sunnyside Gardens and Radburn. The obvious thing you will notice is that there is complete separation of automobile and pedestrian space. As a result the interior green space of the development is weirdly quiet, like you have somehow wandered off of La Brea Ave and into a meadow. (Please note that this lovely place is private property.)
