AMER­I­CAN DREAM

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Architecture -

1950s Cal­i­for­nia was not only an iconic era for Hol­ly­wood style, but an ex­cit­ing time for in­no­va­tive ar­chi­tec­ture. Through the ex­pert lens of the late Los An­ge­les-based pho­tog­ra­pher Marvin Rand, Cal­i­for­nia Cap­tured (£49.95, Phaidon) show­cases some of the most forward-think­ing build­ings at a time of stun­ning ur­ban growth. Works in­clude those by ar­chi­tects Ru­dolph Schindler, Craig Ell­wood, Louis Kahn and Wel­ton Becket, who cre­ated Pa­cific The­atres’ Cin­erama Dome ( left).
