Architecture Tours L.A. Guidebook by Laura Massino Smith

Book Description

Here is THE way to see Los Angeles's rich architectural heritage! L.A. is a "driving" city, best seen from the car. Tour guide, author, and architectural historian Laura Massino Smith directs you on an unforgettable ride to uncover the city's exciting cultural past. You can efficiently visit dozens of L.A.'s architectural marvels in a short amount of time. Maps and explicit driving directions help you navigate roads, while detailed descriptions of tour sites provide each building's history. History buffs, architecture enthusiasts, and L.A. visitors all will love these unique and fascinating tours, which offer the best way to see diverse architecture in L.A. With 120 color photographs you will be able to identify more than 100 sites in the Hancock Park and Miracle Mile areas of L.A. that boast an eclectic mix of architectural styles. Starting in Koreatown at the Post-Modern "Chicken Shack," the author takes tour-goers on an incredible journey through the grand neighborhoods of Windsor Square and Hancock Park, to the Miracle Mile with its concentration of early-twentieth century buildings. Among popular Revival styles, you'll see Arts & Crafts, Streamline Moderne and Art Deco, Victorian, Programmatic, and Deconstructivist. Notable buildings designed by important architects Irving Gill, Wallace Neff, Gregory Ain, Rudolf M. Schindler, Scott Johnson, John and Donald Parkinson, Morgan, Walls and Clements, and more.
