This dynamic exhibition provides an engaging view of the region's diverse urban landscape, including its ambitious freeway network, sleek corporate towers, whimsical coffee shops, popular shopping malls, refined steel-and-glass residences, and eclectic cultural institutions. Drawings, photographs, models, films, animations, oral histories, and ephemera illustrate the complex dimensions of L.A.'s rich and often underappreciated built environment, revealing this metropolis's global impact as a vibrant laboratory for cutting-edge design. Co-organized by the Getty Research Institute and the J. Paul Getty Museum, this exhibition is part of the initiative <a href="javascript:openP('http://www.pacificstandardtimepresents.org/')">Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A.</a> <br> <!-- More Info --> <br><a href="/art/exhibitions/overdrive/"><img border="0" src="../images/arrow_more_events.gif" width="7" height="7">&nbsp;Learn more about this exhibition</a><br> <!-- Reservation --> </span>
