Thoughts on LA

I was visiting LA attending a friend’s wedding. And for once, other than driving to get around… I actually really really like Los Angeles, especially downtown. Its lush, walkable, full of food and diversity and decent architecture. However, it was one of the few cities where I haven’t been able to find street parking. Everything is either a lot of vallet. Also I saw 2 bikes all day. I guess that’s the beauty of it. No competition if you need to bike. . . . As I have visited LA more and more, my distaste for it has slowly changed and the more I feel I could live there. Its no longer as polluted as I remember it to be, nor flat. Perhaps I’ve changed over the years, or the city has finally created a decent downtown.

I honestly think this is Zaha’s best project. It sits in a difficult site where there are a volume in open area connected to a small area crowded area around the corner. There’s lots of interesting public space and the space flow from one room to another. I often find myself anticipating what level I will end up when I walk down a tunnel.

Probably one of the smallest yet elegant museum I’ve ever Visited

From Wiki Italia :

“The Olivetti Showroom in Venice is a small room with two floors located in Piazza San Marco , designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa . After losing its original function for years, on 20 April 2011 the store was reopened after a thorough philological restoration that has returned the colors, the furniture and the collection of original Olivetti machines. The Assicurazioni Generali , which maintain the property, have entrusted to FAI – Italian Environment Fund , which takes care of the maintenance and ensures its use to the public.

Midnight in Manhattan

New York (1)

A small compilation depicting the nostalgic rhythm of a city that never sleeps. These were some of the clips shot between Feb 20 and March 20. This is my tribute to NYC that fueled my obsession throughout much of my highschool and college years.
