Hello Defined Designers!
Recently Anat and I had the opportunity to take a historic tour of Downtown. It was amazing! We were both amazed by the historic architecture and interior gems that lied within our own back yard. The tours are conducted by the Los Angeles Conservancy. The LA conservancy is a non-profit group that works to educate individuals through historic architecture, preservation, and culture within Los Angeles County. Tours are hosted every Saturday and Sunday and are very affordable! ($5 for members and $10 for non members) These tours are a fantastic resource to learn about the history of downtown and various architectural periods. Each tour works to help tour goers experience and explore the history, architecture, and interiors that reside within downtown Los Angeles.
Along the tour we visited various historical buildings some of which we were able to experience the interiors along with the exterior architecture. The interior and architectural periods signified in the featured buildings included styles ranging from Beaux Arts, Art Deco, to Romanesque. Take a look at what we got to experience!
