ModCom Holiday Party

DWP at Night, from Hive Mind's Flickr Page
On Monday night Larry and I attended the Modern Committee's Holiday Party.  The Modern Committee is part of the Los Angeles Conservancy.   "The Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee is a volunteer group formed in 1984 in response to the rapid destruction of a generation of postwar buildings."  We're very interested in the architecture of the 1950's, '60's and '70's.  


This year's party was held in the DWP headquarters, The John Ferraro Building.  This gorgeous building was built in 1965.   It was designed by A.C. Martin and Associates. There are some wonderful photos of the building under construction here.   This building is so forward-looking and hip, that Nancy Sinatra filmed one of her TV shows in front of it in 1967.

Many old and new friends were there.  The interior of the DWP is beautifully modern and spare.  The central staircase is hypnotizing.

After drinks and dinner we were ushered into the DWP Auditorium for a presentation about the architecture of the building.  Also included in this presentation were awards to three of our Modern Masters:  Architect, W.A. Sarmiento; Claremont Artist Betty Davenport Ford; and Landscape Designer Howard Troller.  A band performed after the presentation, but I had to leave.

We had dessert.  There were gifties and a grand time was had by all!  Thank you Chris and Charlene Nichols for organizing another grand event!
