California Crazy

Street Art // Wednesday, May 18, 2011
California Crazy: Roadside Vernacular Architecture, documents the bizarre designs of privately owned businesses in California. The back cover states, “California Crazy is the style of architecture that seems to typify California itself: naive, direct, unpretentious. These buildings were designed to catch the eye, to be remembered. No ad agency conceived them – they were often designed by the owners themselves, poured of ferro concrete and shaped by the undisguised desire to sell.”
