MOCA presents the first scholarly examination of the prolific and often radical forms that characterize buildings designed in Southern California in the last twenty-five years.  Starting in the mid-80s as postmodernism was waning and culminating with today’s emerging practitioners, the exhibition explores the geographic, academic, political, and socioeconomic underpinnings of this innovative period and its most expressive and experimental architects.
