For architecture geeks and scholars, Los Angeles is a mecca for Modernism. From iconic residences to stunning public buildings, discover Mid-Century masterpieces in L.A.
For Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers, the name “Hanna-Barbera” brings up childhood memories of Saturday mornings watching beloved cartoons like The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo and The Smurfs. Founded in 1957 by former MGM animation directors William Hanna and Joseph Barbera (the creators of Tom and Jerry), the Hanna-Barbera Studio moved into its Mid-Century building at 3400 W. Cahuenga in 1963. Designed by architect Arthur Froehlich, the building now houses an L.A. Fitness location, so Modernism fans can get their Saturday morning workout in the place where cartoon history was created.
