Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
First photograph caption dated November 26, 1982 reads, "Don't recognize it? It's the Harbor Freeway during what's usually morning rush hour, on Thanksgiving." The second photograph caption dated February 16, 1986 reads, "Designers of today's glass-box buildings, like these above in downtown Los Angeles instead of following the poetic, simple style set by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, are a weak imitation of his style. Their designers failed to understand the rational, simple purity of Mies' invention."
