California and Southern California have been equated in popular culture with the suburban, single-family home. For decades, however, the Los Angeles region hold another story of hosting a consummate laboratory for exceptional experiments in multifamily housing — dwellings centered on shared open space, from the central courtyard to the rooftop garden.

In Common Ground: Multifamily Housing in Los Angeles, author Frances Anderton explores that fascinating history— from the bungalow courts and apartment-hotels of the 1910s, through the development of garden apartments, to contemporary mid-rise “urban villages” and co-living spaces.

Your winning bid captures this special review copy (in like new condition), which was used for CPF’s 2022 Book Club program with Ms. Andertoton (recording below).
