Los Angeles Today—City of Dreams: Architecture and Design
by Tim Street-Porter; edited by Annie Kelly ; photography by Tim Street-Porter

The dean of Los Angeles architectural photography presents the city’s landmarks through the epic, naturally lit images that have become his trademark. The long horizontal format of the book (dare I say, sprawling?) contains a splendid collection of LA’s greatest architectural hits, from San Gabriel Mission (1771) to the under-construction Academy Museum (Renzo Piano, 2021), and everything high (Disney Hall) and low (Bob’s Big Boy) in between. Organized geographically—with special chapters on Frank Lloyd Wright houses and movie studios—this photographic love letter will delight anyone who lives in and loves our city of dreams.

Rizzoli New York, 2021, 256 pages, hardcover, $70.
