Celebrating Pacific Palisades

This Sunday, the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects offers a tour of Pacific Palisades, an area chock full of pretty homes designed/renovated by local architects like Ric Abramson, Kim Coleman, Barbara Callas, and Susan Budd. Speaking to the LA Times, Carlo Caccavale, the chapter's associate director explains the appeal of Pacific Palisades is that "modern architecture can allow for ocean or canyon lifestyles and bring in as much light and view as possible without eradicating the environment." For instance, lucky PP resident Brigit Hamanaka "can watch dolphins in the ocean, deer in the canyon and hawks fly over the adjacent nature conservancy" from her home. How about squirrels? No? No squirrels, Brigit? That's too bad.
