This guidebook organizes 100 architectural highlights into three walkable tours and two side trips. Including traditional sights (Grauman's Chinese Theatre), modernist landmarks (the Schindler House), creative reuses (the hip Standard Hotel, once the Superior Oil Building) and the latest new public and cultural buildings (Walt Disney Hall and the Getty Center), Judith Paine McBrien summarizes the history and significance of each. John F. DeSalvo's drawings capture the essence of each structure.
