Thirty of the best designs by the most creative firms portray the diversity of Southern California's architecture. Author Sam Lubell draws examples from Montecito to San Diego and the arid conditions of Joshua Tree to illustrate the wide range of responses to geography, budget, and space. Featured architects include Barbara Bestor, Belzberg, Griffin Enright, Lorcan O'Herlihy, Michele Saee, the Office of Mobile Design, and Predock Frane, among others.
"Cantilevered over Los Angeles, tucked into a San Diego cliff, or sprawled across the Joshua Tree desert, the houses of Southern California are some of the most exciting on the planet." —Fast Company
