Pocket Guide to Los Angeles Architecture
organizes 100 architectural highlights into three walkable downtown tours and two side trips.
Los Angeles may never be considered a walking city, but this handbook by Judith Paine McBrien and illustrated by John F. DeSalvo covers such classic sights as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the Griffith Observatory; modernist landmarks such as the Schindler House; creative reuses such as the Standard Hotel, once the Superior Oil Building; and the latest new public and cultural buildings, including Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Hall and Richard Meier’s Getty Center. Each entry summarizes the structure’s history and significance.- Paperback
