Item description for Los Angeles: Architecture & Design (And:Guide) by Karin Mahle...
Eclecticism is LA's defining characteristic. It's a thriving hybrid of a city - decentralized with no clearly defined hub - and its architecture reflects its character. Here is a little guide that will give tourists and professionals alike an overview of notable architecture created in LA during the last fifteen years. More than sixty buildings by renowned architects such as Frank Gehry (Walt Disney Concert Hall), Rafael Moneo (Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels), and Richard Meier (Getty Center) are profiled and over 200 color photographs and a site map are included for easy use.

Coffee Table book Sep 24, 2005
Looks good. The page layout has a 4x4 picture on one side and a brief description on the other side (1-4 sentences) about each building. The book can be very off on the adress; an example being Morphosis, Caltrans 7 HQ. In the book it's address is 312 North Spring Street, well on the side of the building is a 2 story size carving of the address that states: 100. It's actually at 1st and Main, which you can make out in the 4x4 picture in the book. Hard to get that wrong, but they did. Also, I was looking for purely architecture, not caring too much for interiors, but really wanted old LA and New. This book goes into some newly remodeled spaces and just new architecture from the last 8 years. So all in all it's cute book.
