Making History

by C California Style

In 1921, Frank Lloyd Wright completed the temple-like Hollyhock House for his client Aline Barnsdall.

After a $4.4-million renovation that began in 2011, the Mayan Revival-style architectural gem has been carefully restored and reopened to the public. “Angelenos have been waiting for this a long time,” says curator Jeffrey Herr. “It’s an important component of the cultural life of this city.” Tours Thurs.-Sun.; 4800 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, 323-913-4031; barnsdall.org.
