Los Angeles came of age as a modern city in the 1960s. The height of postwar prosperity, the birth of the Space Age, and tectonic cultural shifts fueled unprecedented growth throughout the area. The Los Angeles Conservancy's L.A. 1960s Architecture takes you around Greater Los Angeles to see 60 of the most beloved buildings of this important decade - some of which are now under threat. While growing older strikes fear in the hearts of many - especially in Los Angeles - it's actually good for buildings, which tend to be taken more seriously as they come of age. As sites built in the 1960s reach the ripe old age of 50, they deserve - and need - recognition and protection. We've lost, and are losing, important buildings from the sixties largely because people don't understand why they're significant. As you experience these places firsthand, perhaps you'll agree with the Angelenos who voted them as the People's Choice of local '60s landmarks. Have fun exploring them for yourself! L.A. 1960s Architecture from the Los Angeles Conservancy is part of the Know What network, a collection of apps from brilliant, informed people - each with dozens of favorite places and best local secrets. So you can always Know What, no matter where you are.
