Design East of La Brea (deLab) has done hundreds of micro-tours investigating the most fascinating places on the L.A. design and architecture map, offering both special access to legends and the joy of discovering the new. In addition to its popular bicycle-tour series Design and Dim Sum, locations have included downtown's Grand Central Market, the Echo Park Lake restoration, the Schindler-designed Bethlehem Baptist Church in South L.A., Caine's Arcade in Boyle Heights and the Magic Castle in Hollywood. deLab has collaborated with Dwell on Design, the A+D Museum and a host of artists, designers, architects, conservationists and civic historians, and it's hosting the major one-day festival of ideas Making L.A. in November. —Shana Nys Dambrot
