Architecture of the Sun: Los Angeles Modernism, 1900-1970

Thomas S. Hines is Professor Emeritus of History and Architecture at UCLA, where he teaches urban and architectural history. Hines will discuss his new book, Architecture of the Sun: Los Angeles Modernism, 1900-1970, published by Rizzoli. His previous books include Burnham of Chicago: Architect and Planner, Richard Neutra and the Search for Modern Architecture, and Irving Gill and the Architecture of Reform. In 1982, Hines was co-curator of the Neutra retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. He has held Guggenheim, Fulbright, NEH, and Getty fellowships. A book signing will follow the program.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
