Trip Description

Plunge into the glamour of modern architecture across Southern California from Palm Springs to Hollywood.  On this academic journey, you’ll study the history and design of a fantastic array of homes, visiting modern gems such as the Eames Case Study House in Los Angeles and others.  You’ll travel to the futuristic cityscape created by Ridley Scott’s dark imagination in Blade Runner and discover how a Palm Springs building got whisked to Las Vegas in a James Bond film.


This is a great way to get started on college academics through an interdisciplinary approach to Southern California focusing on art history, film, and media studies.
