Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Architecture

In this Architecture challenge, Cee asks us to share whatever types of buildings appeal to us. I am a huge fan of architectural photography and of contemporary architecture. I love exciting, unconventional buildings (that’s why Los Angeles-based Frank Gehry is my favorite architect), but I also appreciate other styles. Here some favorites from California and Chicago. Some are quirky… 🙂


Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA. “Deconstructivist” style building. Architect: Frank Gehry, 2003.


Santa Barbara Courthouse, Santa Barbara, CA. Spanish Colonial Revival style building. Architect: William Mooser III (1929).


The Chicago Tribune Tower, Chicago, IL. Neo-Gothic style building. Architects: John M. Howells and Raymond Hood (1925).


The John Hancock Center, Chicago, IL. Structural Expressionist style building. Architects: Fazlur Khan and Bruce Graham (1969).


The Getty Center, Los Angeles, CA. Modernist style building. Architects: Richard Meier and Michael Palladino (1997).


The Binoculars Building (Google’s offices in LA), Venice Beach, Los Angeles, CA. Postmodern style building. Architect: Frank Gehry (1991)


Union Station, Los Angeles, CA. Combined Modern, Art Deco, Mission/Spanish Revival style building. Architects: Johan and Donal Parkinson (1939).


The Norton House, Venice Beach, Los Angeles, CA. Post Modern style beach house. A special feature is the office or the “lookout” tower up front, facing the ocean. It is very reminiscent of the lifeguard huts found along the beach. Architect: Frank Gehry (1986).

I must really like the number three because I have lots of photos with three items! So, here is a “small” selection of “Threes” for Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge.
