Product description

Review

"Los Angeles's modernist architecture is defined by the city's climate, opulence and clash of cultures...Thomas Hine's new Architecture of the Sun: Los Angeles Modernism, 1900-1970 (Rizzoli) is a thorough study of the work of Schindler, Neutra, Wright and the inimitable John Lautner. It is also a study in fine living. Chilled cocktail, anyone?" Playboy
"If you coveted the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Ennis House in Los Angeles we wrote about last year, but didn't quite have the $15 million asking price, you should pick up a copy of Architecture of the Sun. The weighty tome, being published later this month by Rizzoli for $95, focuses on Los Angeles' many fine modernist masterworks built from 1900-1970." Luxist.com
