Just five miles northwest of Los Angeles, it was home to a number of movie studios including the first official Disney Studio. Aficionados and students of architecture worldwide make pilgrimages to Silver Lake specifically to see the work of the Modernist architects Richard Neutra, Rudolf M. Schindler, Gregory Ain, John Lautner, and Lloyd Wright (Frank Lloyd Wright, Jr.), among others. In addition to a concentration of "Mid-century Modern" architecture, you'll see popular Spanish Colonial Revival and Spanish Mediterranean architecture, French Normandy, English Tudor, Gothic, and Post-modern styles.
