A + D: LA's New Architecture Museum
Los Angeles has finally established an architecture museum in the glorious Bradbury building, whose conception was influenced by Edward Bellamy's "Looking Backward [full text]." The Bradbury was designed with the assistance of George Wyman, a draftsman with no architectural or engineering training. The A + D museum is directed by Elizabeth Martin, who came to architecture via music. (Ironically some of the exhibits are in the hallways, so it now seems harder to appreciate the Bradbury itself.)
