The Art Book review created a piece, At Home He Feels Like a Tourist, for the MAK Center for Art and Architecture‘s exhibition Plan your visit which ran from February 14–April 7, 2013. The exhibition explored the complex interactions of tourism, tourist destinations and travelers. Set at a locale that is itself an international destination for Modernism aficionados, the historic Schindler House, the exhibition invited a group of artists, architects and writers to explore systems designed to activate a person’s experience of a particular locale.
 
The Art Book Review‘s work consisted of a tall shelf that leaned against the wall with 10 postcards featuring the covers of great L.A. books like The Architecture of Four Ecologies, Hollywood, City of Quartz and Hollywood Babylon each resting on its own shelf. The backs of the cards featured an oft-quoted line from the book. Ot
 
Other participants included artists Kathrin Burmester, Ryan Griffis, Rodrigo Marti, and Tucker Neel, architect John Southern, the collaborative team of landscape architect Sonia Brenner and community researcher Maryam Hosseinzadeh, collectives Cake and Eat It and the Untitled Collective, and restaurant critic Jonathan Gold with photographer Anne Fishbein.
