L.A. Deco

Front Cover
Rizzoli, 1991 - Architecture - 96 pages
The architecture and interior design of 1920s and 1930s Los Angeles is celebrated in this delightful photographic tour of fabulously detailed residential, commercial, and public buildings. The distinctive Southern California version of the Art Deco style is revealed, from the hilltop Griffith Observatory to the houses designed by Lloyd Wright, among many others. An insightful introduction by respected architectural historian David Gebhard discusses the history of the style as it was adopted in the sunny, rather sleepy region during the early decades of the twentieth century. As a guidebook to extant architecture of the period in Los Angeles, L.A. Deco offers the latest look at these historic buildings, through the lens of Carla Breeze, a New York City-based photographer and the author of Pueblo Deco. Book jacket.
