Unique and unreal and an indication of the architects mastery earl in his careeer. Nice to walk around the block to visualize the context, or lack of context to its environment. Difficulty is imagining what he was thinking. Perhaps showing the use of alternative materials...More

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
