HISTORYThe architecture of Silver Lake developed hand-in-hand
with the film industry. Like a mighty wave, the creative
individuals captivated by the magic of Hollywood were
drawn by the thousands to Southern California to make
their mark seeking employment but also needing a place
to call home.
The beautiful hillsides of Hollywood, Los Feliz and Silver
Lake were often the prefered locations for these early
pioneers. As Los Feliz and the Hollywood Hills became
too pricey, homebuyers and renters looked eastward
towards Silver Lake.
The same time, as new architectural styles were coming
into fashion, architects who were designing them found
greater acceptance for their often avante garde designs
in the cultural mix of Los Angeles.
As a result, the works of modernist pioneers Gregory Ain,
Rudolph Schindler, Raphael Soriano, John Lautner and
Richard Neutra are literally sprinkled throughout our hill-
Following their footsteps, a new generation of architects
has emerged: Gustavo Gubel, Sean Briski, John Southern,
Barbara Bestor, Ana Henton, and many more.
These images will help you appreciate our architectural
heritage and the new innovators that continue to interpret
and exemplify beautiful architectural design.
