The success of Los Angeles is dependent of the validity of our individual value system and the appropriate role of our institutions. It is a city without cathedrals and palaces, without formal gardens or physical fortifications, it is a city with conviction and determination resulting from the strength which is an aggregate of its parts. The experiment here will have to show if our mosaic society can describe an overall desirable image within the language of our society and not that of an outmoded classical expression. (Neutra Institute).
