Featuring spaces not often accessible to the general public, AIA|LA tours provide intimate access to some of the most exceptional and innovative architecture in Los Angeles today.

These special visits conducted for small groups of attendees are typically guided by the architects or designers of the project. They provide in-depth insight into design and construction processes.

Whether attendees are Angelenos interested in design, or other architects with years of expertise, each tour provides a rare opportunity to look and learn. This combination of insight and unique access, often render tours fully booked within hours.  

Considering a tour? We encourage you to book quickly.


AIA|LA Architectural Tours share exceptional design by AIA|LA members, with prospective clients, design enthusiasts, and peers in the profession. They offer exposure for designer and firm, and an opportunity to present the project in a larger context.

AIA|LA members seeking to submit their work: please furnish an exterior image, an interior image and a narrative of up to 200 words via email to Executive Director Carlo Caccavale, Hon. AIA|LA .
