Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dense concentration of design talent, uniquely varied topography, and one of the worlds most pleasant climates have made Southern California a crucible of architectural innovation. There, forward-looking clients respond to dramatic modern interpretations of form and site that capitalize on natural light and magnificent ocean views, perch delicately on steeply graded land, or maximize privacy on a sliver of a city lot.

Thirty of the best designs by the most creative firms portray the diversity of Southern Californias architecture. Author Sam Lubell draws examples from Montecito to San Diego and the arid conditions of Joshua Tree to illustrate the wide range of responses to geography, budget, and space. Featured architects include Barbara Bestor, Belzberg, Griffin Enright, Lorcan OHerlihy, Michele Saee, the Office of Mobile Design, and Predock Frane, among others.

About the Author

Sam Lubell is the editor of the California edition of the Architects Newspaper and has written for Architectural Record, the New York Times, New York magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and elsewhere.
