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, "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'. (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 the Image set Twentieth Century Houses: Series 1. Ref WPL, elsewhere in this website).

Residential 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
