I just stumbled upon this wonderfully inspiring and architecturally unique place in LA called The Brewery. The creation of the Brewery Arts Complex began in 1982 at the site of the Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery. With the passing of the Artist-In-Residence code, artists could rent live/work space in industrially zoned buildings. They rented only to artists and that is their policy to this day. LA Weekly called it “the world’s largest artist-in-residence community” and Los Angeles Times quoted The Brewery as the “world’s largest art complex”. These are true lofts, not apartments, in industrial buildings that are a part of what has become a uniquely vibrant and creative community.
