Looking up at the walls of a hotel near LAX. The #patterened #facade in the first photo is repeated on several other walls around the hotel. Above it are many layers of #interleaved balconies for the hotel rooms.

Does anyone know the term for this #architecture style? It’s sort of post-Googie, pre-Brutalist?

Fascinating: At the Guédelon medieval construction site in central France, builders are reconstructing a 13th century castle using only the technologies and materials that were available at the time. Hand-quarried stone cut with hand-forged tools, treadwheel cranes, etc.

A medieval castle in France could be Notre Dame’s salvation

Adding a splash of color to Brutalist design in the final stages of converting an office building near LAX to a hotel.

Adding a splash of color to Brutalist design in the final stages of converting an office building near LAX to a hotel. Believe it or not, the bolted-on cross pieces are new. I can’t imagine they’re aesthetic, which makes me wonder if it’s some sort of earthquake retrofitting and they’re making the best of it. It’s an interesting approach, but it still looks way more institutional than inviting, IMO. #architecture #brutalism #losangeles #goodluckwiththat

Manhattan Beach public library and Light Gate

Manhattan Beach public library and Light Gate. I’m definitely going to have to stop by here the next time I’m in the area around sunset.
