Sprawling Los Angeles may never be considered a walking city, but this concise handbook organizes one hundred must-see architectural highlights into three downtown walkable tours and two delightful side trips. It covers such classic sights as Grauman s Chinese Theatre and the Griffith Observatory; modernist landmarks such as the Schindler House; creative reuses such as the hip Standard Hotel, once the Superior Oil Building; and the latest new public and cultural buildings, including Frank Gehry s Walt Disney Hall and Richard Meier s Getty Center. Each entry summarizes the structure s history and significance and is illustrated with original drawings that capture the essence of the place."
