Forty years after 'Reyner Banham loves Los Angeles' another architect with the gaze of the foreigner takes us on a ride through the City of Angels, or as the Turkish architect Orhan Ayyüce likes to refer to it: "La Citta Capitalista".
"This city is a car city. Los Angeles is cars. From the urbanist's point of view, in order to understand the city, you have to drive", says Ayyüce in the film 'The Vernon City Project'.
The Vernon City Project, submitted by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design and run by Orhan Ayyüce, was selected for the main exhibition of IABR 2014: Urban by Nature.
