About this set

"Los Angeles represents, more than any other city, the American Dream - of wealth, speed, freedom, mobility... Nowhere are there so many superb buildings, designed by top-flight domestic architects... Such a city is not one on which anybody who cares about architecture can afford to turn his back". Reyner Banham, writing in "Los Angeles: The Architecture Of The Four Ecologies".

The following selection of slides is but a fraction of the architecture on offer, but gives some idea of the variety in this city where 'anything goes'.

This set is subdivided into three parts as follows:

Part 1: Craig Ellwood, Frank Gehry, Arata Isozaki, John Lautner, Morphosis, Eric Moss, Brian Murphy, Richard Neutra (images 1 - 56).
Part 2: R.M. Schindler (images 57 - 100).
Part 3: Frank Lloyd Wright (images 101 - 132).

Please note that The Eames House and Studio, Neutra's House and the Barnsdall "Hollyhock" House by Frank Lloyd Wright are not included here - they are all available in Twentieth Century Houses Series 1.
