CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A dense concentration of design talent, uniquely varied topography, and one of
the world’s most pleasant climates have made Southern California a crucible of
architectural innovation. There, forward-looking clients respond to dramatic
modern interpretations of form and site that capitalize on natural light and
magnificent ocean views, perch delicately on steeply graded land, or maximize
privacy on a sliver of a city lot.
Thirty of the best designs by the most creative firms portray the diversity of
Southern California’s architecture. Author Sam Lubell draws examples from
Montecito to San Diego and the arid conditions of Joshua Tree to illustrate the
wide range of responses to geography, budget, and space. Featured architects
include Barbara Bestor, Belzberg, Griffin Enright, Lorcan O’Herlihy, Michele
Saee, the Office of Mobile Design, and Predock Frane, among others.
