INTERVIEWS ON LOS ANGELES ARCHITECTURE:1970-1990
Materia: Monografías / ensayos de arquitectos
Catapulted to fame by the international media in and around the 1980s, a loosely affiliated cadre of architects—the so-called L.A. Ten—emerged to define the future of Los Angeles architecture. In this book, L.A. Ten architects Neil Denari, Frederick Fisher, Ming Fung, Craig Hodgetts, Coy Howard, Franklin Israel ( posthumously ), Wes Jones, Thom Mayne, Eric Owen Moss, and Michael Rotondi offer a casual, witty, and approachable retrospective on the characters, environment, and cultural history of L.A. architecture as they remember it through a series of oral history interviews conducted by Stephen Phillips alongside Wim de Wit, Christopher Alexander, and the students of the Cal Poly L.A. Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design.
