In this article the writer examines the architecture of the city of Los Angeles. In order to make this analysis, the writer discusses Reyner Banham's book 'Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies'. The writer looks at how Banham studies different environments, topography and collections of architecture within Los Angeles.

From the Paper:

"In his book 'Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies', Reyner Banham contributes to the literature on architecture by analyzing specifically the architecture of Los Angeles, a city known for its variety and sprawling dimensions. The author combines insights into the two by showing how the city can be divided into different sections on the basis of differing ecologies, by which he means different environments, different topography, and different clusters of architecture linked to each of the regions he considers. He offers four ecologies in his analysis, showing at the same time aspects of the history of the city and of the state of California, a history that helped shape these differing ecologies."
