AIN't It Grand

Let us introduce you to Mr. Gregory Ain. A buildy sort of fellow with Schindler and Neutra influences. From Wikipedia, we see that Mr. Ain is linked to the Mar Vista neighborhood. "A portion of north-central Mar Vista, the Gregory Ain Mar Vista Tract, is designated as a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone by the city of Los Angeles. This area, built immediately after World War II, contains an abundance of excellently preserved mid-century modern architecture."
