Join us for a walking tour of Culver City in partnership with our good friends at KCRW's DnA: Design and Architecture as part of an exciting full day of events celebrating the Getty's Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A at historic Helms Bakery.
Our two-hour guided tour will focus on contemporary design and architecture, stopping by the area's newest buildings, studios and stores, and meeting many of the creatives who are transforming the city into one of the most exciting pockets of L.A. We'll check out the new digs of Morphosis and Clive Wilkinson Architects, hear from Eric Owen Moss about the legacy and future of the Conjunctive Points and Hayden Tract developments, and peek inside the beautiful Arcana Books space, designed by Johnston Marklee. Plus, we'll be joined by Culver City planner Joshua Williams, who can answer all your burning questions about the smart urban design and planning that makes this city shine.
The tour will end at Helms Bakery at noon, just in time for you to grab a bite at one of the food trucks before an afternoon of design and architecture events hosted by DnA's Frances Anderton. There will be two panel discussions, live music from KCRW DJ Liza Richardson, a pop-up gallery of design curated by DnA's new "DJs" (design journalists), food trucks, and more! Tickets for the afternoon events are available at KCRW.com
