Overdrive : L.A. constructs the future, 1940-1990

edited by Wim de Wit and Christopher James Alexander

This is a fascinating and intelligently illustrated study of architectural innovation in Los Angeles. From 1940 to 1990, Los Angeles rapidly evolved into one of the most populous and influential industrial, economic, and creative capitals in the world. During this era, the region was transformed into a laboratory for cutting-edge architecture. Overdrive examines these experiments and their impacts on modern design, reframes the perceptions of Los Angeles' dynamic built environment, and amplifies the exploration of the city's vibrant architectural legacy. The drawings, models, and images highlighted by Overdrive reveal the complex and often underappreciated facets of Los Angeles and illustrate how the metropolis became an internationally recognized destination with a unique design vocabulary, canonical landmarks, and a coveted lifestyle.
