Where Am I in Culver City? Game 065 Solution

Every other Friday, I post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.' Last week I asked: Do you know where in Culver City this bit of geometry is? 

 

As Culver City Times members Crystal Covington (first!) and Kevin Lachoff indicated, this was a detail from the stained glass front of Culver City's City Hall building. (Better luck next time, Narvo!)

According to the city's web site, the stained glass was created in 1995 by artist Ed Carpenter. The website goes on to say:

Located on the north side of the third floor atrium of the Culver City City Hall, Ed Carpenter's stained glass screens are an abstract representation of a hanging garden. The artist intended the artwork to serve both a functional and artistic purpose -- as a wind barrier and light filter -- and as a visual bridge connecting the upper floors of City Hall's main facade. Dichroic glass (glass that has been fused with various metal oxides) has been incorporated into the design, which lends to the overall sparkle and iridescence of the work.
