Eleanor Schrader Presents “What Style Is It?” for Architectural + Design Lecture No. 43 on November 5
Pacific Union International and Compass warmly invite you to the November 2018 presentation of Architecture + Design Lecture No. 43, hosted by the award-winning educator, architectural and interior design historian Eleanor Schrader, on Monday, November 5 at the Pacific Design Center from 10am-12pm. 

Join us as Schrader takes the audience through the variety of architectural styles that shape the city of Los Angeles. The city is brimming with architectural delights that reflect our myriad of cultures and display our unique historical and social landscape, and design historian Eleanor Schrader knows the abundance of building styles found in the City of Angels like no other.

From the romantic haciendas and missions of our early heritage through the eclectic mixture of contemporary structures, as well as the Hollywood stars and movers and shakers of Los Angeles that inhabited them, Los Angeles showcases an architectural culture that’s amongst the most diverse in the nation.
As a Professor Emeritus of Art and Architectural History at Santa Monica College and Distinguished Instructor at UCLA Extension Architectural and Interior Design Program, Schrader is a renowned speaker on the history of architecture and design. In A+D Lecture No. 43, guests will learn about the Classical Revival and Victorian Mansions inspired by East Coast architecture; the restful and earth-toned inspirations of the Arts and Crafts Movement; the stylish and streamlined Art Deco period reflecting Hollywood glamour; the romantic revival styles of English Tudor and Spanish Colonial; the innovations of Mid-Century Modernism; and the stylistic endeavors of Postmodernism.

The event is open to all, although RSVP is required, and we encourage you to invite both colleagues and clients. Breakfast and program are complimentary.
