     What got my attention firstly was the Architectural details present on Villa Aurora building. The Style of the construction is the Spanish Style, typically used on constructions around LA at that time as a traditional and characteristic typology of building. The elements translate the early times spanish colonial style in California.

     The main topic of research in the Villa Aurora visit will be the typical elements of the Spanish Colonial Style, photography will be the mechanism for documentation.  

 

     Another element of interest is the wide collection of books in Villa Aurora library. Also they may help in the research of the architectural elements.

 

    Villa Aurora was built by architect Mark Daniels and interior designer Rodney Benso, which was hired by Arthur Weber in collaboration with the Los Angeles Times. The building was set for demonstration purposes during the first years till when it was sold to German-Jewish author Lion Feuchtwanger and his wife Marta.
