Over the course of a long weekend, participants can expect to enjoy experiential events and learning opportunities that highlight Long Beach’s architectural heritage and powerful relationship with art and design. Attendees are invited to experience five days packed with activities kicking off with a premiere launch celebration, the Rat Pack Party at a fabulously restored Paul Tay house, a recent Long Beach Heritage Preservation Award winner. As a series, LBAW gives attendees the opportunity to explore important structures in the city, learn about preservation and sustainability and delve into the future of the built environments of Long Beach.

Showcasing sites that encourage summer fun in indoor-outdoor experiences, signature programs are worth saving the date. Design fans, mark June 9 on your calendars, when architect and inventor Doris Sung gives a keynote talk about innovative sustainable solutions in the Aquarium of the Pacific’s beautiful state-of–the-art immersive Pacific Visions theater. Architecture lovers will not want to miss opportunities to tour the mysterious T.H.U.M.S. Islands in a beloved tour back by popular demand, now featuring exclusive highlights of new research discoveries. On June 12, a recent Mid-Century preservation project is at the center of a tour and talk at the newly restored 1950s Belmont Shores Mobile Estates designed by noted Architect Roy Sealey, pictured above.

This year, LBAW also offers more accessibility through app-based programming.
