The use of Banham in GTA could be a tribute to English architectural historian Reyner Banham, who studied the architecture and ecology of Los Angeles and published the book "Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies". The book studied how Los Angelinos adapted their building styles to the four main ecologies of Los Angeles - beach, mountains, flatlands and freeways. Perhaps the Rockstar team used the book as a source material when they studied Los Angeles.
