Art Deco LA



Description:

During the golden years of Art Deco, Los Angeles was growing at a tremendous rate and construction in the area was booming. Accordingly, L.A. is a treasure trove of Art Deco architecture, with buildings in the zigzag, classic moderne, and streamline moderne styles. Downtown and the Mid-Wilshire area are especially rich in this respect, although there is Art Deco everywhere throughout L.A.

Day one concentrates on downtown and shows the locations of many buildings from the LA Conservancy's Art Deco walking tour.

Day two lists additional famous Art Deco buildings all across Los Angeles.
