Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies
Rare paperback book featuring an architectural study of Los Angeles. By Reyner Banham, published in 1971. 5th edition, 256 pages.
"Reyner Banham, an Angeleno at heart, has written here a pioneering architectural study of the seventy-mile-square city and the historical process which has made it unique as a human settlement. Dismissed as an environmental disaster, LA nevertheless has bred better architecture than any American City."
