Happy Birthday, DWP

KCRW host and Dwell editor Frances Anderton points out that many of the city's famous 1960s buildings are about turn 50 years old. Which is important for what reason? "Well now such beacons of optimistic Modernism like the DWP Building (pictured) and the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, not to mention the entire Century City complex, as well as thousands of suburban houses all over the Southland, are hitting middle age and at 50 become eligible for historic landmark designation." Actually, the fact that the Century Plaza is being nominated and isn't 50 yet is what ticks off those who want to see it come down. [KCRW]
