Reyner Banham

 
Reyner Banham and his book Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies got me through my thesis when I returned home to Los Angeles from Denmark. He was my only remaining support. I kid but well... not so much but that's a longer story than I'd like to tell here. 

All I can say is if you are an Angeleno it's a must read and if you aren't and you are one of the many that sneer at or dismiss Los Angeles, it's a must read. 

I had no idea there was footage relating to the book. What a great find!
