Architecture + Design LA

 
9780964186361: Architecture + Design LA

The third edition of Michael Webb’s Architecture + Design LA has doubled in size, from 48 to 96 pages, and now includes about 800 of the best buildings, interiors, design resources, and arts facilities in Southern California, from the heart of downtown Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley and Orange County, plus new sections on Santa Barbara, Palm Springs and San Diego. Another valuable new feature is the Art and Design Resource List of outlets recommended by experts for vintage and contemporary furnishings, fine and decorative art, books and fashion, well-designed housewares and a dozen other categories. A general index has been added to the alphabetical listing of architects and designers.

Within each of the ten sections on greater LA and the three on outlying areas, entries are listed sequentially and are color coded, according to their accessibility. Each entry is cued by number to detailed area maps and some are illustrated by line drawings. Pithy comments identify a selection of classic, contextual and cutting-edge architecture. Must-sees, from the Bradbury Building to the Getty Center, and three decades of work by Frank Gehry are listed, alongside adventurous hotels and restaurants, stores and warehouse conversions that showcase the talents of younger designers.

From the Author:

“We’ve tried to create a compact, up-to-date guide to all the places and things a design-oriented visitor might want to see in a week, as well as a handy ‘black book’ for residents,” says Michael Webb. “The goal was to distill the essence of a vast and confusing city into a slim volume that you could carry around in your pocket or purse.”

About the Author:

Michael Webb is executive editor of the architecture and design city guides that are published by The Understanding Business (TUB). The first edition of the guide to New York City appeared in 1999; an earlier volume on San Francisco is also available, and guides to other cities are in development. Webb has written extensively on architecture and design. His 15 books include It’s a Great Wall!, Through the Windows of Paris, New Stage for a City, Architects House Themselves, and several monographs. He is also a regular contributor to Architectural Digest, Domus, Graphis, Interiors and the Los Angeles Times Magazine.
