What Will Take the Place of Ray Bradbury’s House?

Hosted by

Ray Bradbury’s Cheviot Hills home of more than 50 years has been torn down -- by none other than the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne.

Thom Mayne and his wife Blythe Alison-Mayne respond to the furor at the destruction of the house; they also explain what they plan to build on the site and how they plan to commemorate the famed author.

Ken Bernstein, Manager of the Office of Historic Resources and Principal Planner of the Citywide Planning Division for the City of Los Angeles' Department of City Planning, reflects on how the house slipped through the net of the preservation community.

Jonathan Eller, Director of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, explains why he supports the Maynes’ plans even as he mourns the loss of the “little yellow house.”
