Horton Plaza Mall was once a vibrant shopping plaza and one of the catalysts that helped transform San Diego’s historic Downtown into a bustling city center. Known for its unique and colorful architecture, this postmodern icon now sits almost abandoned with only a few stores remaining. Join us on Wednesday, October 16th at 7 PM for a compelling lecture on the history of Horton Plaza, and an inside look on how the distinctive design ideas helped make Horton Plaza a celebrated destination that breathed new life into downtown in the late 1980s to early 1990s.

Location: Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House’s Mary Joralmon Gallery: 410 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.
