Kanner in Retrospect

New, 1 comment

LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne reviews the Architecture + Design Museum's retrospective of Stephen Kanner, who died young, but very accomplished, earlier this year. Hawthorne writes that while Kanner designed great Pop architecture, like the Westwood In-N-Out, "for the most part [he] produced buildings that were straightforward and civic-minded in the great L.A. tradition of William Pereira, Welton Becket and Albert C. Martin — not to mention of his father Charles Kanner and grandfather I. Herman Kanner." [LAT]
