ˇ@Description Today in Silver Lake there are several young firms that aspire to continue in this tradition of low-key, experimental modernism. The new architects Bestor put in this book are not doing mid-century historical revivalism, but trying out new ideas. Schindler really started the regional non-conformist modernism movement that Bestor subscribes to. Silver Lakeˇ¦s architecture grew up parallel to international style modernism, but it developed without the formal orthodoxy. The bohemian strain was supported by three factors: the clients, the climate (all the sun, water, and swimming pools), and the vision of the architects themselves (many of them were European trained ?migr?s in the exalted company of Thomas Mann, Arnold Schoenberg, F.W. Murnau, and the like). This work is defined by informality, rawness, and a large dollop of hedonism.
