We’re proud of our entire team of contributors here at Charles & Hudson. They’re a diverse bunch that are experts in renovation, electrical, design and architecture just to name a few.
A couple of our contributors are also published authors and we wanted to share their work which is now available on Amazon.
Long Beach Architecture: The Unexpected Metropolis (California Architecture and Architects) by Jennifer Volland
A fascinating first-time look at one of California’s most interesting cities. Beginning with an illustrated essay on the history of the built development of Long Beach, this big and beautifully produced volume also documents one hundred of the city’s most important architectural projects, built, unrealized, and demolished, by architects as varied as Julia Morgan, Edward Killingsworth, Greene and Greene, and Raphael Soriano.
New and archival photographs, many by masters such as Julius Shulman and Marvin Rand, combine with the fresh and original prose to present a city both familiar and undiscovered. A must for architects, local residents, indeed anyone with curiosity about the urban growth of Southern California.
