LA Modernist masterpiece finds its new love… in Belgium

Imagine a story that combines: 1) a meticulously restored Richard Neutra in the Hollywood Hills; 2) the founder of the rock band Devo; 3) a Modernist aficionado in Belgium. We couldn't make this stuff up.
John Aaroe Group recently represented Devo singer/bassist Gerald Casale in the sale of his Richard Neutra gem in the Hollywood Hills. Designed in 1936 for Los Angeles Examiner printer Josef Kun and designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 2011, it's a superb example of the Internationalist style that made Neutra a Modernist icon. (It also launched the career of master architectural photographer Julius Shulman, whose amateur snapshots of the property impressed Neutra and led to the young beginner's first professional assignments. But we digress.) more »

"Secret" garden

Let's see, there's the Arboretum, the Huntington, the Exposition Rose Garden… and the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden. Well, it's definitely famous to people who study plants, we guess because it's home to one of the most important living botanical collections in the US. You'll find it on the UCLA campus in Westwood. Go. Explore. more »
Vanished rock billboards take one last bow

For 20 years, the Sunset Strip was one long, spectacular gallery of rock billboards - every inch painted by hand, only to be painted over, reused, and lost forever. Now, the Skirball Cultural Center is bringing some of the best images back. more »
