Overview

The popular language of status-conscious architecture is explored in this account of the notorious do-it-yourself remodels clustered on the fringe of Beverly Hills in West Hollywood.

The result is a lively architectural vernacular, well documented with "before and after" photos, interviews, and construction details.
