From Library Journal:

This slim volume, documenting a series of discussions organized by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design in 1988 and 1989, focuses on the current work of 22 young practitioners on the West Coast. A separate chapter is devoted to each architect or firm, while three critical essays attempt to define the social, political, and cultural forces that link these designers to one another. As Frank Gehry notes in his introduction, the quality of imagination and accomplishment of the architects represented is "pretty uneven." At its best, the work is witty, complex, and exciting; at its worst, it is mannered and pedantic. Profusely illustrated with photographs and drawings, this is recommended reading for followers of contemporary American architecture.
