Reyner Banham examined the built environment of Los Angeles in a way no architectural historian before him had done, looking with fresh eyes at its manifestations of popular taste and industrial ingenuity, as well as its more traditional modes of residential and commercial building. His construct of "four ecologies" examined the ways Angelenos relate to the beach, the freeways, the flatlands, and the foothills. Banham delighted in this mobile city and identified it as an exemplar of the posturban future. In a spectacular new foreword, architect and scholar Joe Day explores how the structure of Los Angeles, the concept of "ecology," and the relevance of Banham's ideas have changed over the past thirty-five years.

Review:

“In one volume [Banham] does the near-impossible: He makes us see this fragmented city [of Los Angeles] as a breathing whole.” (Ariel Swartley Los Angeles Magazine 2009-03-01)

“Still as penetrating now as when Banham completed his observations on the city in 1971.” (La Observed 2009-04-24)

“Banham wrote like a blissed-out lover, surrendering to his feelings of derangement and wonder while keeping his eyes wide-open.” (Los Angeles Times 2009-06-21)

“Banham's book has remained au courant.” (Palisadian Post 2009-06-18)
