The architecture of Los Angeles seems at first sight to be chaotic,
individualism being its only rationale. This work looks beneath the surface to
find out why the city's architectural scene is so fascinating. It provides a
survey of Los Angeles' most provocative buildings and landmarks, and an
architectural analysis of the entire period of the city's development.
Beginning with the pioneering characters of the American Arts and Crafts
movement, including the Greene brothers, it traces the city's architectural
development through the works of Frank Lloyd Wright and Rudolph Schindler to
the buildings of Frank Gehry and the architecture of the avant-garde. The book
considers the historical and geographical elements which are an important part
of local sensibilities, weaving them into a narrative about the complex design
activity taking place in the city today.
