History buff? Architecture fan? Join us for a special walking tour of the architectural treasures on Grand Avenue and the Financial District in downtown LA with Robert Inman, an award-winning urban walker and frequent collaborator of his mentor, Dr. Robert W. Winter. Inman recently completed the 6th Edition update of An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles. This Guidebook is often regarded as the go-to definitive source for the City’s noteworthy designs, ranging from historic to modern.

Tour highlights include the US Bank Tower, the Bunker Hill steps, Water Court at California Plaza, Walt Disney Concert Hall and its Blue Ribbon Garden, the Broad Museum and adjoining Otium Restaurant and the Bonaventure Hotel. Tour concludes at City National Plaza (Gensler) with book sales and signing with the author. Fun fact: Inman is the author of A Guide to the Stairways of Los Angeles (2008) and Finding Los Angeles by Foot: Stairstreet, Bridge, Pathway, and Lane (2013).

Free event to Town Hall and Los Angeles City Historical Society Members. Pre-registration is required; space is limited. This 90-minute activity consists of city walking on uneven streets and stairs.
