News and Online Community for Culver City - The New Scene
Each friday at 6:00 pm, I'll post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.'
This time, it's this funky bit of infrastructure that almost resembles a pulpit: do you know where in Culver City it is?
If you recognize it, enter your response in the comments!
I'll reveal the answer next friday.
Last week, we asked where this building was:
The answer is:
It's the Park Century School at 3939 Landmark St. in the Higuera District. Founded in 1968, Park Century School is a non-profit, independent co-educational day school designed to meet the specific educational, emotional and social needs of bright children, ages 7 to 14 years, who have learning disabilities.
The school's loggia, including the trees, was designed by none other than by Frank Gehry and Christopher Ward and installed in 2008. Frank Gehry (who served as the loggia's architectual advisor) is one of the world's most sought after designers, responsible for such other landmarks as Disney Hall in downtown LA and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.
Christopher Ward, who served as architect of the project, is a Los Angeles based architect and artist who also has won numerous awards for his work.
Landmark crosses Washington just one block west of National, and the building is a half a block up the street, on the right. It's actually right around the corner from these murals.
It's an interesting stretch of Washington Blvd. Ninety years ago, it was home to Hal Roach Studios and today it's a mere block away from the expo line terminus.
