4th International Iconic Houses Conference Location: Getty Center Los Angeles Dates: February 17 - 19, 2016
ICONIC HOUSES is proud to present its 4th International Conference to be held February 17th to 19th, 2016 at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Hosted by The Getty Conservation Institute and Getty Foundation at Richard Meier’s Getty Center, the event will feature more tours, more speakers, and more networking activities than in past conferences, all focusing on Modern residential architecture’s importance, its preservation, and its future.
The theme for the conference is A California State of Mind: The Modern House Museum in Southern California. Since Los Angeles is the spiritual home of the modern house, there will be several renowned Modern homes to visit (many of them not normally open to the public), both during the optional pre-conference tours and as part of the regular program. The story of the Mid-Century Modern movement will be told in one day with tours of the Gamble, Hollyhock, Schindler and Neutra houses, and there will be opportunities to visit landmark homes including the Eames House and several others. Guests will enjoy spectacular views at the closing cocktail party in Club James, the newest addition to the legendary Goldstein Residence, designed by John Lautner in 1963.
