Architectural Highlights of the Southland



Description:

Los Angeles is a treasure trove of both Art Deco and Modern architecture. Many Art Deco buildings are located either downtown and in the Mid-Wilshire district; this Art Deco guide covers more sites in this architectural mode.

In terms of the Modern movement, Los Angeles is ground zero for residential architecture of this type. There are a number of Frank Lloyd Wright residences. Schindler and Neutra were based here for many years and had clients on the area. The later generations of Modernist residential architects are well-represented as well, including Craig Ellwood, John Lautner, and Gregory Ain, The trick is finding what you want to see in the massive Los Angeles area.
