A Man That Changed Perceptions of Los Angeles

“Now I know subjective opinions can vary, but personally I reckon LA as the noisiest, the smelliest, the most uncomfortable and most uncivilized major city in the United States. In short, a stinking sewer …”

Journalist Adam Raphael for The Guardian in 1968

There you go Angelenos! That was the world opinion of our great city during the time. Architectural experts and intellectuals energetically maintained this rough outlook of the City of Angels. Then, along came a British architectural expert, well respected in his profession. A man with a shaggy beard and bad teeth, who proclaimed and professed his love for Los Angeles and its architecture. His book, Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies became one of the most energetically pro-Los Angeles books ever written. Reyner Banham put his love for Los Angeles into words and rocked the architectural world! His book continually lands on lists of great books about modern cities, even amongst critics whose opinion continues to oppose Banham.

Reyner Banham was an English architectural critic and prolific writer best known for his theoretical treatise Theory and Design in the First Machine Age (1960) and for his 1971 book Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies. In the latter, he categorized the Los Angeles experience into four ecological models (Surfurbia, Foothills, The Plains of Id, and Autopia) and explored the distinct architectural cultures of each ecology. Banham worked in London, but lived primarily in the United States from the late 1960s until the end of his life. Banham also had a stint teaching at USC, during which time he lived in Pasadena in the renowned Gamble House. His perceptions and writing redefined the way the architectural experts, and the world, perceived our great city.

“Los Angeles offers radical alternatives to almost every urban concept in unquestioned currency.”
Reyner Banham

Banham believed the most unique value of Los Angeles is that it offers radical alternatives to almost every urban concept.

ADG Lighting Adds The Magic Touch To Kardashian Style

Architectural Digest Celebrity Homes Kardashian

We are always thrilled to have an opportunity to work on projects in celebrity and high-end luxury homes across Southern California. These projects allow us the distinct opportunity to work with some of the most creative and innovative designers in the industry. Often, these projects are featured in publications and highlighted in editorials, increasing the value and notariety of the property. Our work is still the “secret sauce” of the industry and we bring a key design and creative element to the style of these properties. In the March 2016 issue of Architectural Digest, our work was highlighted in the home of Kourtney Kardashian. The feature showed off the elegance and sophistication of the space. The lighting elements that appear in the feature were initially commissioned by the previous owner, but retained in the remodel by designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. We were honored that Kourtney and Martyn understood the impact and timelessness of our pieces.

ADG Lighting graces the pages of so many industry magazines that feature the timeless projects of exceptionally talented designers. The architects and designers of these featured projects graciously and openly provide our information for credit. However, with so many of these publications, including Architectural Digest, our work is not credited in the publication. We believe that the lack of proper credit for artistic and creative credit in these publications is related to the business relationship with that publication. These publications want to credit and highlight contributors that are also paying advertisers with their publication.

Our position has been and always will be that we provide unique design and manufacturing of custom lighting that significantly enhance any design project. ADG Lighting remains one of the best kept secrets in the industry and we are proud to fill that role. For those who provide proper credit and acknowledgement, we appreciation your generosity. For those clients who know about us and choose to work with our creative team, we know that you receive the best treatment in the industry and the creative edge over all others.
