Beverly Hills Master Architects Approved.


The Beverly Hills City Council voted unanimously on January 10 to adopt an ordinance which will help protect the city’s irreplaceable historic and cultural resources. The ordinance followed several recent losses of modernist structures including John Lautner’s Shusset Residence and the Beverly Hills Friars Club, as well as the proposed demolition of Richard Neutra’s Kronish House (pictured).  The ordinance called for a list of “Master Architects” to be produced and was open to public comment.

The ordinance defines “master architect” as “[a]n architect of recognized greatness in the field of architecture who is included on the list of such architects compiled by the Cultural Heritage Commission, and updated from time to time.”

This past Tuesday, the list of ”master architects” was accepted by Beverly Hills City Council and includes the following :
