Making L.A. Modern: Craig Ellwood - Myth, Man, Designer

ISBN: 9780847861538
AUTHOR: Michael Boyd   Richard Powers

This is the definitive volume on Craig Ellwood, a visionary architect, designer, and tastemaker often called the "California Mies van der Rohe." Craig Ellwood, "the Cary Grant of architecture," was one of the most visible faces of California mid-century modernism. He was known as much for his exquisitely designed, minimalist structures as he was for his exuberant lifestyle. This book celebrates and explores the glamour of Ellwood's work, life, myth, and career. Through photographs, primarily of the iconic houses he designed in Southern California during the 1950s and '60s, we see a life of refined decadence, expressed through gorgeous architecture, fast cars, beautiful women, Hollywood style, palm trees, swimming pools, and minimalist design, all in the context of the Southern California postwar building boom. This volume will appeal to design junkies, architecture buffs, students of modernism, and anyone interested in problem-solving and elegant solutions.
