The Design Advocate is an outreach tool to keep the 3200+ architect & design members of AIA Los Angeles updated about pending matters at City Hall, which may impact the built environment & their profession.
Dear Mayor Brucker and Members of the City Council:
On behalf of the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|LA) we are writing to encourage you to protect the Kronish House from demolition. Designed by architect Richard Neutra in 1955, the Kronish house is an excellent example of modern architecture and, if properly restored, has the potential to serve as a valuable cultural asset for Southern California.
In addition to protecting the Kronish House from demolition, AIA|LA also encourages Beverly Hills to consider adopting a preservation ordinance that will help protect other architectural landmarks, which have helped Beverly Hills become a world-renowned destination. Encouraging property owners to accept tax benefits under the Mills Act in exchange for preserving and restoring landmark structures is an initiative that will provide cultural benefits for future generations.
