With a special introduction by Eric Evavold, Los Angeles Architectural Tour Guide and Bullock’s Wilshire Ambassador

This lecture will present many never-before-seen photographs and drawings from the Peters family’s private collection which are featured in the newly released monograph, Jock Peters, Architecture and Design: The Varieties of Modernism (Bauer and Dean Publishers, November 2021), the first book to survey his career.
