Riassunto: Venice, California, is one of the most vibrant and distinctive communities in the United States. While it’s best known for its bohemian atmosphere, picture-perfect canals, and rambunctious boardwalk, there’s much more to Venice than what appears on the glossy surface. For years, it has been a locus of creative activity and home to world-class artists, architects, and designers who have continuously given it new life. Venice, CA is an exploration of Venice’s original and captivating approach to lifestyle, architecture, and design.
Established a century ago as the Coney Island of the Pacific, Venice lost its rides and gained a picturesque clutter of cottages and warehouses. In between these humble facades are cutting-edge buildings by Frank Gehry, Morphosis, Coop Himmelblau, and Lorcan O’Herlihy. Venice, CA allows readers unprecedented access into the homes and studios of Ed Ruscha, Dennis Hopper, John Baldessari, Ken Price, Robert Graham, and other major artists, architects, and mavericks.
Michael Webb is the author of more than twenty-five books on new and classic modern architecture and design. He grew up in London and now lives in Los Angeles, in the Richard Neutra apartment that Charles and Ray Eames once called home.
Juergen Nogai is an architectural and fine-art photographer based in Santa Monica, California. His work can be seen in Abrams’ Dream Palaces of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Malibu: A Century of Living by the Sea, and numerous international publications.
