Los Angeles Union Station Hardcover, by Marlyn Musicant

$59

About

Union Station today is a celebrated architectural icon and vibrant centerpiece of Los Angeles’s regional transportation network. Designed by John and Donald B. Parkinson, its mission revival architecture speaks to a mythic vision of Spanish heritage, but with streamline moderne and art deco details. At first glance this masterpiece, conceived as a magnificent gateway to the growing metropolis, offers no hint of the civic, financial, and legal battles surrounding its development, siting, style, and construction?battles that were waged across decades in the early twentieth century and that went as high as the U.S. Supreme Court. Los Angeles Union Station Hardcover, by Marlyn Musicant. Getty Research Institute, 2014. Hardcover with dust jacket. Los Angeles Union Station explores the compelling example of how transit and corporations disrupted regional balances of power and political economies. Aided by new research and beautiful drawings from the Getty Research Institute’s archive, the authors demonstrate how contentious politics transformed architectural design?and the many ways in which Union Station was at the heart of the rise of Los Angeles. This book accompanied the exhibition "No Further West," on view at the Los Angeles Public Library from May 2 through August 10, 2014. NPT Books, a division of Trent Antiques, has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.
