un-city
I'm having some aesthetic problems with Los Angeles. Where are the moderns? I know, believe me I know, Los Angeles is Not New York, but people came out here, I thought, to build something new. So they threw off their shackles, went west, watered the desert, and created...kitsch? Some of my favorites -- Neutra, Wright -- did their stuff out here, but the kids have forgotten about them.
