Did Pelli’s Pacific Design Center change LA landscape in a good way?

Published

PDC

(Los Angeles Times) Los Angeles is famous for outlandish architecture.

But many were unprepared for what architect Cesar Pelli had in mind for a swath of land at the corner of Melrose Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood that once housed a Pacific Electric railway facility.

In 1975, the first building of the Pacific Design Center opened, altering the landscape and beginning decades of debate about whether the interior design and arts complex is an architectural gem or eyesore.

Space Force Reveals First Uniform and They Might Need a Redesign

(TMZ) — Well, President Trump ‘s new baby just crapped all over itself — because the U.S. Space Force’s first uniform is a big hit … with our enemies — in spaaaaace!!!

Space Force gave the world a sneak peek at some of its gear … showing off a glimpse of a camouflage jacket. It’s got “U.S. SPACE FORCE” on the chest … and a “SPACE COMMAND” badge on the arm, right under the U.S. Flag. Awesome.

Except … IT’S CAMO!!! The standard green, brown and black shades of camo are the LEAST camouflaged colors on a space ship or in space. Right?

That much was obvious to everyone on Twitter after Space Force posted the image. As some users pointed out … Space Force appears to be battle-ready, as long as we’re taking down the Ewoks on the forest planet of Endor from “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.”

Space Force, which officially launched about a month ago, has only one member so far — Gen. John “Jay” Raymond, the Space Force Commander. Based on this first uniform, we should look into recruiting a fashion designer too.

As the Internet was quick to point out after the Space Force post … perhaps something in black would be better for flying under the radar in space. Or maybe gray to blend in with space ships. Then again … we don’t even know what those will look like.

Pentagon, we have a problem … lots to sort out.

Celebrated architect David Adjaye’s first California project is in the Beverly Center

BEVERLY GROVE (Curbed LA) — National Museum of African American History and Culture designer David Adjaye ’s first project in California will be at a surprising location: The Beverly Center.

Adjaye is designing an 11,000-square-foot store for The Webster , a “luxury multi-brand retailer,” that sells high-end apparel. Adjaye has designed a number of other stores across the globe, including two stunning spaces in historic buildings in New York for designer Proenza Schouler and a ground-up space for the Aishti Foundation, a collection of bars and in Beirut.

Adjaye’s addition—said to be pink and concrete—to the nearly 900,000-square-foot Beverly Center could draw attention to the indoor mall, which opened in 1982 and has struggled to stay relevant .

Last year, the hulking center completed a mullti-year, $500-million makeover […]
