12 places to see classic Southern California roadside architecture

Buildings shaped like unusual objects are part of the Southern California experience. What could be more L.A. than eating a doughnut underneath the giant replica of one at Randy’s Donuts. That kind of building is called programmatic architecture, although it has other names. Some people call it novelty architecture. And some people call it weird. It began with the car culture of the early 20th century, said Adrian Scott Fine, director of advocacy for the Los Angeles Conservancy, a non-profit org...

Visiting DC Gardens and Memorials in Covid Times

Almost no traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue. I hadn’t been downtown DC since last year, so with glorious September weather upon us, I was determined to go. But I’m not using public transportation unless I absolutely have to, so taking the usual subway right is not an option – until further notice. Then a friend who’d driven downtown for a BLM rally told me how easy it is to pay and reserve a parking spot. Driving is actually faster from my house – just under 30 minutes, off-rush, which barely ex...

Frank Gehry’s New Eisenhower Memorial In DC – Last Of The “Great Men” Memorials?

Over the past decade, and at almost every step — from the design competition to the groundbreaking in 2017 — the project was dogged by controversy, subject to congressional hearings and, at one point, effectively defunded by the government. – Washington Post

How algorithms are designing better buildings

When giant blobs began appearing on city skylines around the world in the late 1980s and 1990s, it marked not an alien invasion but the impact of computers on the practice of building design. Thanks to computer-aided design (CAD), architects were able to experiment with new organic forms, free from the restraints of slide rules and protractors. The result was famous curvy buildings such as Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and Future Systems’ Selfridges Department Store in Birmingham. To...

Frank Gehry And His Favorite Buildings, And How He Thinks About Buildings

“I don’t play music and I don’t paint, but I always thought architecture was an art and I try to practice it that way. Architecture is intuitive. It’s humanly expressive. You’re putting yourself on the line. You start out not being understood, and you keep going because you have to. And it’s harder to explain.” – New York Magazine

I drove a $76,000 Cadillac XT6 and $70,000 Lincoln Aviator in a battle of three-row American luxury SUVs — and the winner was clear (GM, F)

I drove 2020 versions of the Cadillac XT6 and the Lincoln Aviator back-to-back on different coasts. My Lincoln Aviator tester was a hybrid-gas-electric model that outdid the Cadillac XT6 by a wide margin on horsepower. Both SUVs labor in the competitive three-row segment, which offers customers versatility, but at the price of cargo area when the third row is in use. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring was the clear winner in this comparison, and I actually deducted points before I made my ...

NFL stadium a catalyst for Inglewood rebirth, but some fear the community is losing its soul

Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. thinks of “Star Trek” when he describes the transformation expected for his city over the next five years. To the mayor, the new NFL stadium slated to open in less than a year is Inglewood’s version of the Genesis Device, a miraculous technology from 1982’s “The Wrath of Khan” that could turn a barren planet into utopia. As Butts sees it, the more than $5 billion catalyst at the former site of Hollywood Park will uplift the area around the stadium and then casc...
