A comprehensive overview of Southern California’s most experimental
architecture, showcasing the highly expressive work of famed architects
such as Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne, as well as the best of the new
guard. This is the first critical examination and history of what was
first identified as the "L.A. School" in the 1990s, which has influenced
much of American architecture in the last twenty-five years. This
expansive new book examines contemporary Southern California
architecture from 1987 to the present, exploring its experimental
nature, sculptural tendency, and exciting evolution. This volume
complements a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los
Angeles, and is part of the Getty Research Institute exhibition
initiative "Los Angeles Architecture, 1940–1990." Contributions by
leading architectural historians coupled with a stunning collection of
images present recent works in terms of sculpturalism and urbanism, and
consider the impact of the history and environment of Los Angeles, as
well as the creative and working processes.
