The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Southern California Chapter (ICAA SoCal) is a wonderful learning institution. It’s a place where modern and classical architecture students can learn and share ideas by studying the architecture of the past. Architecture and design play such large roles in our real estate business. We’re proud to support this organization and everything they do.

Throughout the year, the ICAA SoCal offers different interactive tours (both virtual and in-person), as well as lectures and webinars from influencers in the architecture industry. Here are some of the upcoming events you might want to consider attending:
