Up until about 1920 most of the Spanish style architecture found in Southern California could be defined as 'Mission Revival' or 'Pueblo Revival'. The Panama-Pacific Exposition buildings in San Diego, designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue in 1915 created an explosion of interest in a more elaborate style of Spanish architecture that lasted up until the United States entered WWII.

The Villa Pedroarena, designed for Carolina J. Pedroarena by Architect Henry Grey in 1940 is characteristic of the more elaborate Spanish Colonial Revival Style, borrowing details of Moorish and Renaissance inspiration. Dramatic details include complex roof forms of varying heights; lacy gates and balconies; hand-painted inlaid tiles and an enclosed courtyard with fountain, creating a theatrical effect found in great favor during the period. Carolina Pedroarena was born in California on May 26, 1878.. She worked for the J.W. Robinson Company between at least 1903 and 1918, starting out as a clerk and working her way up in the organization to become a buyer. Later she served as a Deputy Clerk for the County of Los Angeles and as a court interpreter. She apparently remained single throughout her life. The 1930 census lists her as "head of household"; living with her at the time were her mother, Filiciana, a widow, brothers Miguel and Gregorio, a court clerk and a sister Ysidora, a teacher. She died in Los Angeles on January 22, 1964. Art Collector and architectural specialist Andy Jelmert restored the house during a two-year process, retaining and refurbishing classical details, adding modern appliances and conveniences.

The Pedroarena House is located at 2464 Micheltorena Street in the Moreno Highlands. located at 2464 Micheltorena Street in Silver Lake.

Competing Utopias is a design collision that should never happen. But somehow, in Los Angeles, in 2014, twenty-five years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it will. This installation is a 'mash-up' in the most provocative sense of that word. Its force comes from the collision of two design cultures that have been kept apart but have been visually connected in ways yet unexamined. This experimental installation will presents Cold War modern design from East and West in one context accompanied by fictional narratives by Katya and Alexei Tylevich about the house and its inhabitants.

Competing Utopias is organized by two Los Angeles institutions: the Neutra VDL House and the Wende Museum - Archive of the Cold War, and is made possible through a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.


The exhibit will run from July 13th to September 13th 2014 and will be open for tours Fridays 6-9:30pm and Saturdays/Sundays from 11am to 3pm. Cost is $10/person. After the exhibition closes, the VDL House will be open on Saturdays only from 11 am to 3 pm.

No need to make an appointment; tours are given as visitors arrive.
