Moby Losangeles Architecture:

ok, graffiti.

i mean, technically it’s attached to a building, so it’s tangentially architecture? right?

well, maybe i just have too broad an idea of what constitutes architecture, as i’ve included pictures of clouds and lizards on this site. but i’m a college drop-out, so what do you expect? an erudite and reasoned consideration of exceptional buildings? or pictures of lizards and graffiti? how about an erudite and reasoned consideration of lizards and graffiti? and buildings, too, on occasion.

i also have a really hard time spelling words with double consonants. like: ‘occasion’.  is that right? it looks like it should have 2 ‘s’s’.

so: graffiti. you have to admit, this graffiti is pretty remarkable. and it defines and establishes the space, far more than the building upon which it’s been painted. the building itself is kind of egregiously unremarkable. it’s only the graffiti that distinguishes the building from the few million other generic buildings in l.a.

i especially like the scary blue baby doll playing bongos. and the scary clown.

Moby Los Angeles Architecture Blog:

i’m in new york and montreal and el paso this week, so unfortunately this will be my last architectural update until next monday.

but in the meantime here are some pictures of what is arguably one of the most historic and iconic and remarkable houses in l.a, the schindler house.
it’s been photographed about a million times, and deservedly so, for it’s a beautiful and idiosyncratic and strangely bucolic (although a lot of that is, of course, the setting) house.
it also has a really idealistic and idiosyncratic history, here’s the wikipedia page if you’re interested:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler_House

and apparently when it was first built you could sit up in the sleeping baskets and see all the way to downtown (now that’s impossible due to the 4 billion buildings that have been built in the last 90 years in l.a between the schindler house and downtown).

also a nice l.a architecture fact: at one point schindler and neutra co-habitated in the house.

i’ll take some other pictures this week, and if they’re worth looking at i’ll put them up here.
and then next week i’ll get back to taking pictures of oddball buildings in l.a.

thanks
