i was in a neighborhood in studio city yesterday and i found this little beautiful gem of a mid century house. and i like lists, so here’s a list of why i’m including it in my arbitrary and random architectural blog.
- i love that it’s basically a mid century tree house.
- it’s literally about 300 yards from some of the least inspiring urban architecture in l.a, reminding me that there’s something hidden in plain sight almost everywhere in l.a.
- see ‘1’. i mean, it’s a tree house.
- i think ‘1’ and ‘2’ pretty much cover the reasons why it’s in/on/at my arbitrary blog.
- but i like lists so i’ll include a few more list items.
- like this one, ‘6’.
sorry for wasting your time. ok thanks. and it’s raining in l.a, which is great.
i think it’s the second time so far in 2013 that it’s rained in l.a. so, thank you rain gods.
as an issue-laden and self-involved new yorker now living in l.a i of course go to therapy.
the other day while en route to therapy i passed this remarkable church in studio city (which is, technically, the valley, although my friends who live in studio city are loathe to admit it). i had 10 minutes free before therapy so i swung into the parking lot and stopped to take some pictures of this remarkable little modern church. and there, hidden in the midst of it’s remarkable-ness, were some equally remarkable and odd mosaics depicting things like, for example, ‘the first murder’.
so, here are some pictures of this remarkable modern church and ‘the first murder’ mosaic.
and oh, i tried to find out some information about the church, specifically who might’ve designed it, but all i learned on the google was that there’s a 3 year waiting list to get married in the church. at least according to the google.
so, in conclusion: nice architecture, nice and odd mosaics, and a 3 year waiting list to get married.
all in all it was an educational 10 minutes in the parking lot pre-therapy.
