"This book looks at the intersection of celebrity and design, through the case of 25 houses designed by great architects for their informed, trend-setting, and extremely famous clients, in Southern California. Hollywood Modern spans the modern era, from moderne homes of the 1930s, through mid-century modern designs, to the present day. Hollywood Modern touches on the many moods of modernism. These houses edit, rearrange and direct our point of view much like the carefully composed version of reality we see in motion pictures. These different styles co-exist as modernism and stand in distinct contrast to the Mediterranean villas and Spanish Colonial manses of early Hollywood."--Provided by publisher.
