Beyond the Bulldozer: Survey LA

This colloquium
will spotlight SurveyLA, the City of Los Angeles’ groundbreaking

from "Googie-style" coffee shops to the 1950s ranch house. And
developer John Given of The CIM Group will bring a private sector
perspective on the challenges and opportunities of historic
preservation and adaptive reuse projects. Seating is limited; please
RSVP by Wednesday, November 19th to Alice Lepis at
alepis@prodigy.net (preferred); also at 818.769.4179

Location: Huntington Library, Ahmanson Classroom, Botanical Complex
