This fall's MAK architecture tour will highlight modernist gems in Silver Lake, Echo Park

A long-lost Lautner, plus homes by Soriano, Ain, Schindler, and DeLong

Mark your calendars—the MAK Center’s Fall architecture tour fundraiser is October 2. This year’s tour offers a close-up look at nine architecturally significant private residences built between 1934 and 1953 in Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Mount Washington.

One stop on the tour likely to generate plenty of interest is Echo Park’s Jules Salkin House, aka the "long lost Lautner" built for the co-founder of Brentwood’s celebrated Mutual Housing Association, which popped up on the market for the first time in May 2014. The midcentury modern will be making its debut fresh from a restoration overseen by Barbara Bestor.

The tour also includes visits to homes by Raphael Soriano, Harwell Hamilton Harris, RM Schindler, Gregory Ain, and James DeLong. Each of the featured architects started their careers working for Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and/or Rudolph Schindler (both of whom also worked for Wright).

Tickets for the self-driven tour are $90 ($75 for Friends of the MAK Center).
