Los Angeles Standards est un portrait photographique de Los Angeles qui présente la ville à travers 15 typologies ordinaires caractéristiques de son tissu urbain.

1300 photographies prises entre 2008 et 2012 par Caroline et Cyril Desroche, architectes français venus habiter et travailler à Los Angeles, sont présentées à la manière d’un documentaire. Organisées en chapitres, elles permettent d’établir des comparaisons, des analogies et des correspondances entre des archétypes tels que les freeways, les parkings, les rues, les chantiers, les billboards, les mini-malls, les habitations. Chacune de ces images est référencée par son adresse.

Alors que Los Angeles s’engage dans un processus de forte densification de son existant et de transformation de ses infrastructures, ce livre est un témoignage visuel de son état actuel, de sa forme contemporaine et de son histoire urbaine.

Los Angeles Standards is a photographic portrait of Los Angeles which offers a way to view the city through 15 typologies which identify this unique city environment.
The 1300 photographs were taken between 2008 and 2012 by French architects Caroline and Cyril Desroche during the years they live in Los Angeles. They are organized in order to compare and contrast the design archetypes that they have identified, including Mini-Malls, Billboards, Freeways, Parking Lots and Stilt Houses. Each picture is accompanied by its address for research and travel.
This book aims to identify various standard elements which visually define Los Angeles. While the city is in a continual state of flux, becoming denser and re-defining its urban landscape every day, this book is also a record of the influence of its urban history on its present identity.
