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: Frank Gehry (images 1 - 44).
