    Architecture Inspires Urban Exploration and Community Engagement

    FORT: LA’s mission is to provide easily accessible information to deepen appreciation for and engagement with residential architecture that can be found in Los Angeles County, and to create an opportunity to engage with the region as a whole. Much as the late Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold inspired residents to venture beyond their normal boundaries to explore the city, FORT: LA leverages the region’s distinctive residential structures to encourage Angelenos to learn about and celebrate the full dynamism that is Los Angeles.
