Dramatic photos and fascinating text explore the rich angular ornament, towers, graphics, and exaggerated works created by architects and designers in 1920s to 1940s Los Angeles. Students and admirers of the Art Deco and Streamline styles will delight in the remarkable array of public buildings, office towers, theaters, restaurants, religious structures, apartments, hotels, and individual homes. Many of the leading architects of the era are featured, including Claude Beelman; Morgan, Walls & Clements; A.C. Martin; Walker & Eisen: and John & Donald B. Parkinson. Celebrating populist, progressive, machine-age Los Angeles, this wonderful book showcases the two main categories of Art Deco styles: the zigzag, perpendicular Deco style of the 1920s and the aerodynamic, cubist style of the Streamline 1930s and early 40s. Allied to these are the many L.A. works known as PWA and Classical Moderne, as well as the playful Regency Moderne. With both exterior and interior views, this is an essential reference and a stunning tribute to architectural expression in Los Angeles.
