Some highlights:
  • Meet the finalists for our Jewels of Pasadena: Women of Distinction Awards gala.
  • Tour the guest house of the Showcase House of Design. You’d never guess from the post-design photos that this space was recently a dilapidated stable.
  • Take inspiration from our four, featured “Great Spaces,” including a modern, eclectic English Tudor in Altadena; a spacious South Pasadena creative hub; a Pasadena artist’s converted industrial loft; and a classically breathtaking Greene & Greene home overlooking the Arroyo.
  • Get to know a student and graduate of Art Center’s environmental design program who are improving the human experience.
  • Dive into the history of Southern California architecture at Heritage Square Museum.
