A must-have guide to one of the most well-known regions for the development of Mid-Century Modern architecture.

Discover the most celebrated Modernist buildings, as well as hidden gems and virtually unknown examples - from the iconic Case Study houses to the glamour of Palm Springs' spectacular Modern desert structures. Much more than a travel guide, this book is a compelling record of one of the USA's most important architectural movements at a time when Mid-Century style has never been more popular. First-hand descriptions and color photography transport readers into an era of unparalleled style, glamour, and optimism. Featuring private and public residences and commercial architecture by some of the biggest names in architecture, each of the buildings is located on a regional map. The book includes all the additional information needed to find and visit each building. Its cool and functional design makes this book a coveted Modernist-style object in itself.
