Iconic L.A.

Stories of L.A.'s Most Memorable Buildings

by Gloria Koenig / foreword by Frank O. Gehry

Los Angeles is a city of instant recognition. The buildings of Iconic L.A., identifiable the world over, demonstrate the personality and power of Los Angeles as a major metropolis. Their stories are the story of a city in progress, an urban biography that tells a century's worth of history. From its dusty beginnings as a mission outpost and rail stop to its status as the ultimate urban laboratory, its climate, open land and lack of entrenched tradition will continue to contribute to the potential for innovation and invention in this unique city.

A bestseller in hardcover, Iconic L.A. has been completely updated and revised to include Case Study House #8, the famed steel-and-glass masterpiece designed by Charles and Ray Eames.
