The Legacy of Downtown's Parking Garage Erector Set

New, 17 comments

That tinker-toy parking structure across from the Disney Concert Hall will be dismantled in the next few weeks to make way for the condos, retail, and skyscrapers of Frank Gehry's Grand Avenue project. The LA Times waxes nostalgic on the 39-year-old structure that, like many things in this city, was intended to be temporary but overstayed its welcome. We profess a fondness for the structure. It's simple, mostly open air, and not a giant cement parking tomb.
