Examines the built environment of Los Angeles, looking at its manifestations of popular taste and industrial ingenuity, as well as its traditional modes of residential and commercial building. This title also examines "four ecologies" in the ways Angelenos relate to the beach, the freeways, the flatlands, and the foothills.
