Journalist and writer Gloria Koenig profiles 13 important public and private buildings in the Los Angeles area, including one designed by her husband, architect Pierre Koenig. Although very different from one another, she argues that the buildings together form an "architectural web" that represents the cultural currents at work in the city. Among other topics, she covers each building's origin, architect, construction process, and history, as well as its public reception. The book contains high-quality b&w photographs.
