The modern single family home is where the advertising campaign for the Second Los Angeles was created and transmitted, thanks to a series of famous advertisements by the architectural photographer Julius Shulman. Those photographs suggested the forward-looking, deeply glamorous optimism of postwar Los Angeles, epitomized by the hillside modernist house with a pool -- and, of course, a view to die for. But what does that dream look like now? These homes were meant as prototypes for a new generation of middle-class housing -- big on architectural character but modest in size and price. Today, they are rented out for parties, film shoots and product launches. What you can see from their living rooms is not the expanse and promise of Second L.A. but a landscape of conflict in the flats of Hollywood, ground zero for debates about growth, density and development. John Lautner’s Sheats-Goldstein house has been pledged by its owner to the L.A. County Museum of Art, to become a kind of hyper-modern house museum. There’s the palpable sense that L.A.’s architectural experimentation at the level of the individual building -- especially the single-family house -- has passed into history, is something to be protected by a museum, to be looked at as if under glass.
Activists erected a mock tent city outside the Grove shopping complex on Friday afternoon while calling on city leaders to create more affordable housing in Los Angeles. "You may think this will never happen to you," said Section 8 housing resident Emily Martiniuk, who lost her job and then her home several years ago. "And please believe me, I hope it doesn't. But it happened to me." Protester Dina Brown, of the nonprofit group L.A. L.O.V.E., wore a T-shirt that read "Gentrification is Warfare." "I always say to people, 'You might be OK. You might be a homeowner - but I bet you, you know someone who's hanging on by a thread," Brown said. A study released earlier this month found that Angelenos need to make upwards of $109,000 annually to afford the average apartment in the city. "I mean, what can you say about that? It's misery," Brown said. Activist Mel Tilekeratne called on Mayor Eric Garcetti "to take the lead and make affordable housing the priority for the city of L.A. - not the Olympics." In a statement released to ABC7, the mayor's office acknowledged the housing crisis. "At the same time, we must protect the affordable housing we already have," said press secretary Alex Comisar. "The Mayor has already strengthened the Rent Stabilization Ordinance, and we are taking new steps to educate renters about their rights." Brown said the effort has not been enough - "not when we all have to come out here and make these kinds of stunts, to get public attention for this problem." "L.A. should be for everyone," she said. "Everyone should be able to have a place to live." http://abc7.com/news/housing-activists-erect-mock-tent-city-in-fairfax-district/2258949/ Speakers included: Sylvie Shane (sp) Areneo Ompenado (sp) Grace Gonzales (sp) Marisa DeLeon (sp) Victor (sp) Emily Martenik (sp) Sheila Dee Noah Grynberg - Los Angeles Center for Community Law & Action Mel Tillekeratne Susan Mone (sp) Produced by Jeff Fleiss Founder of HelpingHomeless.info
It sounds impossible…a home in Southern California for just $100,000 dollars? But it's true, and it could be the future of housing as home prices skyrocket and space dwindles. FULL STORY: http://bit.ly/2yjlwGT
When we set out to find the homes our budget would buy, we knew we would get little to nothing for $200,000. But doubling that price limit to $400K we just assumed we were firmly in the SoCal housing market. Our eyes didn’t want to tell our wallets what we found. It’s not that you can’t find a house for nearly a half million dollars in Southern California; you can. But is it in a place where the commute to work is realistic? Is it in a somewhat safe neighborhood? Depending where you search, the answer is decidedly, maybe. http://www.foxla.com/news/local-news/136461750-story

In the aftermath of the defeat of Measure S, reforms are under way to rationalize the planning and approval process for new housing development. The City of Los Angeles planning department is preparing to revise community plans and the mayor has taken action to make developer input more transparent. But major questions remain about how best to engage the citizens in supporting new housing construction, and what should be the principles for treating neighborhoods fairly in addressing city-wide housing needs?
