Pavillion Dans Les Arbres from Evan Mather on Vimeo.
HESPERIA: Last summer, Venice-based Touraine Richmond Architects finished up a visitors center building at the Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area in the San Bernardino Mountains (after various troubles related to wildfires, bald eagles, and recessions). Filmmaker Evan Mather made this short film "Pavillion Dans Les Arbres" about the project. [Vimeo]
HOLLYWOOD: A reader asks: "I was wondering if anybody knows if the construction going on at Hollywood and Garfield is going to be a mixed use space and what the rendering looks like." Perhaps this reader is referring to 5555 Hollywood Blvd.? That site, once intended for a Whole Foods and condos, is getting 120 senior housing units and 6,000 square feet of retail. Renderings are here. [Curbed Inbox]
