Farmers Almanac: Blanditechture

New, 21 comments

LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne takes the current lull in Farmers Field activity as an opportunity to critique the designs for the proposed Downtown NFL stadium. While he admits we don't know very much, he says it looks like Gensler's design will be "a whole lot more of the same" for South Park: "Farmers Field promises to expand, in seamless fashion, the reach and impressive scale of AEG-land, that sleek, glossy commercial oasis between South Park proper and the Harbor Freeway." He worries that Post-Disney Hall "it appears the city could revert to its status as a place where the most talented local architects struggle to get any sizable hometown commissions, and where the most expensive projects tend to be among the most architecturally conservative."
