Brooks + Scarpa: Ordinary and Extraordinary
A behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to survive and thrive as an architectural duo in Los Angeles. Tibby Rothman takes the reader on a storytelling adventure - with interviews, insight, quotes, and details you'd never imagine could be true about the wonderful office of Brooks+Scarpa. From the first story of the "game changer" Colorado Court project, designed for Community Corp. of Santa Monica, with Larry Scarpa's glittering blue solar panels - to the epilogue tale of Angie Brooks' visit to Capitol Hill, post-Trump's inauguration, for solidarity and sustainability. This book is truly a masterpiece in sharing with Angelenos, non-architects, and design aficionados alike - what it means to be an architect.
