The A+D Architecture and Design Museum and Angeleno Magazine present a series of four salons at iconic mid-century modern homes in Los Angeles. In 1946 four musicians returne from the war and pooled their resources to create the cooperative housing group. Salon #2 will take place at the A. Quincy Jones designed MHA site office. The site is historic-cultural monument #680, with sloping glass walls and cantilevered wing as a metaphor for America’s boundless self-confidence after World War II. The building literally takes flight across the canyon.
