Los Angeles Residential Architecture : Modernism Meets Eclecticism (Paperback) (Ruth Wallach)
About this item
During the first half of the twentieth century, Los Angeles grew into a sprawling metropolis. As suburbs developed, demonstration homes and housing exhibitions brought innovative architectural and interior design styles. Displays like the California Home and Garden Exhibition showcased the latest in timesaving appliances, modern furniture and cutting-edge building techniques meant to represent the future and ideals of Southern California living. Model and tract home exhibitions like those at Leimert Park inspired a new generation of homebuyers. Designed to house the masses, multi-family developments like the Zigzag Moderne-style Val d'Amour were benchmarks for their time. Join author Ruth Wallach on a tour of the varied Modernist styles that give Los Angeles its distinct residential landscape.
