MODERN ARCHITECTURE and HISTORIC BUILDING PHOTO ARCHIVE
Downtown Los Angeles developed from a quiet little village to one of the leading urban
centers of western culture. Hollywood's movie industry was a major influence in the
way we think and feel and want to life, even when it comes to buildings and architecture.
Jesus was a roaming rabbi and former homebuilder with no intention to build houses
for himself or his followers. Today we find thousands of church buildings, honoring a
man who denied wealth and success, and knew: Love is a gift and not a given right.
Modern architecture is the style of the 20th century. Not only simplification of form and
elimination of ornament, but also social matters of affordable housing in a growing urban
environment were crucial.
