SANTA MONICA: The Gehry Residence, architect Frank Gehry's first significant work, has won the AIA's 2012 Twenty-Five Year Award, for a "a building that has stood the test of time for 25 to 35 years as an embodiment of architectural excellence." The award will be handed out in May in Washington, DC. As Dexigner describes, the house is "A seemingly ad hoc collection of raw, workmanlike materials wrapped around an unassuming two-story clapboard bungalow." The LA chapter of the AIA gave Gehry's Loyola Law School their Twenty-Five Year Award in 2011. [Dexigner]

THE VALLEY: With work moving swiftly on the Orange Line extension to Chatsworth, construction necessitates the temporary relocation of three current busway stops during the weekend of the twenty-first: "Stops at Pierce College, De Soto, and Canoga stations will be temporarily relocated one block south of these [permanent] stations to Victory Boulevard beginning at 12 a.m. on Saturday, January 21 through 12 a.m. on Monday, January 30."
