Check out the more eclectic, surprising side of LA architecture on this walking tour of Venice that will showcase buildings from the 1970s and '80s. Presented by the LA Conservancy as the start of its "Curating the City: Modern Architecture in LA" series, this is a rare opportunity to get a closer look at gems like Ed Moses' studio and the delightfully off-kilter house of late actor Dennis Hopper. Artist Chuck Arnoldi will even be at his studio to greet guests personally. Meet up and check in at Westminster Avenue Elementary School (1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd) and learn about how the laidback neighborhood was the perfect stomping grounds for experimental young architects who created innovative, modern and whimsical structures while collaborating with legends like Frank Gehry and Frank Israel. If you're hungry for more knowledge, stay for a panel discussion with architects Steven Ehrlich, Frederick Fisher and Brian Murphy from 1:30–2:15pm.
