Abramson Teiger on Miracle Mile, Inside Chicago's Corncobs

New, 1 comment

MIRACLE MILE: It's fun to think about what the Downtown federal courthouse will look like, or the Broad Museum on Bunker Hill, but let's also not forget about the smaller projects that keep architects in business. These are digital ad agency Huge's new digs at 6100 Wilshire (they'll have killer views of the future Academy movie museum), designed by Culver City's Abramson Teiger Architects. The space is 18,888 square feet and was designed to have a lot of natural light and sustainable features (like reclaimed lumber from Brazil and Southeast Asia). [Curbed Inbox]

HOLLYWOOD: One thing LA does not have enough of is brutalism, right? If you're craving some Chicago-style corncob-looking architecture, there's Inside Marina City opening at the WUHO Gallery tomorrow: "For more than two years, Iker Gil and Andreas E.G. Larsson documented the lives of residents in the non-Euclidean geometries of architect Bertrand Goldberg's iconic Marina City (1959-67) in Chicago. Celebrating Goldberg's original vision for affordable apartments in a central, high-density location, this revealing series of photographs provides a rare, behind-the-scenes tour of the diverse array of people and living spaces within these popular cylindrical residential towers." It runs through October 28. [Curbed Inbox]
