Our year began with a fun personal project – the Lindbergh Beacon. When we heard the news that it would be lighted for the 12 days of Christmas (nice move, Mayor Garcetti), we rushed out to capture one of the coolest historic features of downtown. Between out-of-town trips, scheduling new jobs and battling this never-ending cough, things have been a little delayed around here, but we’re finally back to our regular schedule. So, without further ado, here it is:
In the heart of Burbank, there lies an Art Deco time capsule. Designed by architects William Allen and George Lutzi, Burbank City Hall is the essence of WPA Moderne-style.
Built in 1943, the municipal building has remained fully intact and still serves its original purpose, which makes it one of our favorite historic buildings in LA based on merit alone.
