Aia tour

The American Institute of Architects' self-guided home tours are one way to view some of L.A.'s most interesting homes. Yes, you may be asked to wear booties so you and other tour-goers don't track dirt into some pristine, minimalist manse. But the atmosphere is casual, you can go at your own pace, and you can learn from designers on site.

Aiatouragain The Sept. 19 tour will highlight four hillside homes, each with design constraints to overcome.

Homes span from Los Feliz to Beverly Hills and will include the Brarcliff View House, above, designed by John Pugliese for Cambia Designs; the Steelhouse, designed by Marc Angelil and Sarah Graham of AGPS Architecture; the Oberfeld Residence by Zoltan Pali of Studio Pali Fekete Architects; and the Lago Vista Guest House by Aleks Istanbullu Architects, pictured at right and one of the featured projects in the Homes of the Times archive

The AIA Fall Home Tour runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $65 to $75 in advance, $85 on the day of the tour. Order online or call (213) 639-0777.
