L.A. [Ten] Interviews on Los Angeles Architecture, 1970s-1990s


Catapulted to fame by the international media in and around the 1980s, a loosely affiliated cadre of architects--the so-called L.A. Ten--emerged to define the future of Los Angeles architecture. In this book, architects Neil Denari, Frederick Fisher, Ming Fung, Craig Hodgetts, Coy Howard, Wes Jones, Thom Mayne, Eric Owen Moss, Michael Rotondi, and former associates of the late Franklin Israel offer a casual, witty, and approachable retrospective on the characters, environment, and cultural history of L.A. architecture as they remember it. Architect, historian, and educator Stephen Phillips and the students of the Cal Poly L.A. Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design, alongside Wim de Wit and Christopher Alexander of the Getty Research Institute, conduct the engaging series of oral history interviews.
