THE VIEW FROM HERE: ARCHITECTURE AS WITNESS TO HISTORY
On Permanent View
LA Plaza’s Vickrey-Brunswig Building, Plaza House, and adjoining two-and-a-half-acre campus are located in the historic heart of Los Angeles. The museum resides within both the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument, considered to be the original site of city as founded by colonists from Mexico, and the ancient Tongva city of Yaanga, the precolonial center of the region’s indigenous population. Through photographs and objects excavated onsite, the permanent exhibition The View from Here surveys how LA Plaza and its surrounding landscape developed over the last three centuries.
