One of Garavaglia Architecture, Inc.’s projects in Southern California, La Laguna de San Gabriel, was just voted First Place for the Cultural Landscape category in the Top 60 in the ’60s poll. This opinion poll was conducted as part of LA Conservancy’s celebration of the ’60s turning ’50s. The Top 60 are listed in the categories of civic/institutional, commercial/retail, industrial/manufacturing, cultural sites, residential, and cultural landscapes.
La Laguna was saved from demolition in 2006 by the Friends of La Laguna. Garavaglia Architecture, Inc. is proud to be part of the process, providing a Historic Structures Report and a Preservation Plan for this playground built by concrete artist Benjamin Dominguez. The project is also a 2009 LA Conservancy Preservation Award winner.
