A new thread about the gorgeous LA
Los Angeles is one of my favourite cities in the United States. A prosperous place, easygoing people and beautiful weather!...

“Los Angeles is a world centre of business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, technology, and education. It is home to renowned institutions covering a broad range of professional and cultural fields and is one of the most substantial economic engines within the United States. Los Angeles has been ranked the third richest city and fifth most powerful and influential city in the world, behind only New York City in the United States.”

Los Angeles from above!
I took these pictures few minutes before landing.

Thanks for sharing Rossignolneuf. Franck Gehry is a genius indeed! I wonder why Algiers does not call famous architects like him, Hadid, Nouvel, Calatravas, and so many others. It is clear that landmarks generate people's interest, which increases tourists traffic and local revenues. I've also noticed that the architects in Algeria are not celebrated as the government takes ownership/pride of everyting/anything. Sad!

Talking about architecture, the design of this house is reminiscent of the great Antonio Gaudi.
