WCAPT is pleased to announce their 2014 Annual Meeting Saturday May 10, which features two exciting tours! This year we meet in Southern California, in Los Angeles at the recently renovated Ace Hotel, formerly the United Artists Theatre. The theatre was built in 1927 and originally designed after the Segovia Cathedral in Spain. It has been adaptively rehabilitated as a hotel by GREC Architects and Commune Design.
The Annual meeting begins at the hotel in the Segovia Hall at 2 PM and is free to members. At the conclusion of the Annual meeting at 3 PM there will be a tour of the Hotel, followed by a presentation of its rehabilitation. A wine reception follows hosted by Stonesculpt at 5 PM.
Plan to spend the weekend! The Ace Hotel is offering a special rate for a Friday and Saturday night stay just for WCAPT guests. Ask for the 'WCAPT' rate' when booking, or call Kim Riggs at 213-842-3579.
Prior to and separate from the Annual meeting on Saturday morning, join WCAPT for a guided tour of the exterior of the Ray and Charles Eames House. The house is located at 203 Chautauqua Blvd. in Pacific Palisades. Conservation work to the house will be described during the tour. Assemble at 9:45 AM at the parking area on Corona Del Mar. Download parking directions here.
The cost of the Eames Tour is $15 for members and guests, and $20 for non-members and their guests.
Attendance for the Ace Hotel tour and wine reception following the Annual meeting is $25 for members and guests, $35 for non members and their guests.
The Annual Meeting day of events is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Sika, Sherwin Williams, Stonesculpt and Spectra Company.
