Trousdale, LA's Forgotten Architectural Mecca, Makes a Comeback

Interesting article in the NY Times, albeit a bit on the "glam" side.

Interesting... but no mention of Steven Price's work documenting Trousdale Estates and the book he is writing.

It's amusing to see the effects that Beverly Hills/ Hollywood opulence had on these MCM's, some of these are quite ugly IMO. At least now I know exactly what I'm looking at when I drive through there. Basically Over the top MCM, Beverly Hills have a ton of these and those funky regency style ones. Thanks for the insight.
