Join us this week as we talk with Elaine, caretaker for evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson’s 1920s Moorish castle in Lake Elsinore, about the building’s history, design and role as Sister Aimee’s cherished retreat from the limelight.
We’ll also visit with Donald Spivack, longtime CRA/LA urban planner, to discuss the public policies and development projects that spearheaded the rebirth of Downtown LA’s historic core, and the challenges facing this fast-changing, mixed-use community.
We’ll also discuss the 100 day milestone of Program 50 in Skid Row, how Claud Beelman’s archival work came to be included in the Getty’s new L.A. architecture exhibition, Richard’s interview with Charles Bukowski’s muse Linda King, a new home for the San Gabriel Mission’s mill race, a lost Einar Petersen mural from the Rosslyn Hotel found on eBay, and Stephen Gee’s new book on architect John Parkinson. All this and more, as Kim & Richard usher in the week of July 1st, 2013.
