Koning Eizenberg Architecture

Julie Eizenberg

$24.95

In Urban Hallucinations, architects Koning Eizenberg take on the idyll of local and neighborhood through the design of recent projects in the Los Angeles region. They bring a fresh eye to place-making and community building in an urban area that is ambivalent about development, yet conscious of regional issues—notably sustainability, affordability, and housing shortage. Believing opportunities hide in plain sight, the architects sift through the context of increasing regulation, differing opinions on responsible growth, and priorities for quality of life to extract their own unexpected and compelling approach to the architecture of the day to day.
