Emerson
Behold the new Emerson College “complex” (s0-called) for television, film, and advertising production studies on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, designed by Thom Mayne of the firm Morphosis, which has been reviled on this site before for its techno-narcissistic archi-stunts. This one is as if the Jolly Green Giant  dropped a crate of seltzer bottles in the parking lot of the local beverage center. Note how nicely it blends in with the shitty strip-mall buildings on the block — is that a pole-dancing bar in the lower left? The building is being touted as “futuristic.” That’s rich. If anything it’s a sentimental glance into the recent past of its designers. The future will actually look nothing like this.

Published as an E-book for the first time!
The 20th Anniversary edition
With an entertaining new introduction by the author

    Behold the gloriously ugly. Looks like they are trying to be too clever by half. Combining the box with the little module idea.

    Hmmm brilliant, absolutely brilliant…..

    Let’s put the building inside a proscenium arch that doubles as the frame around a screen. That way, no one will forget that this is a center for television and film studies. Yeah, great advertising, that.

    Trying not to spoof morning coffee…
    I am amazed this ‘glass house’ (is it really glass?!) even made it past California earthquake regulations… would be great to have a live-cam pointed at it so we can watch the results of their next 5+ earthquake.

    On the other hand, I understand that some industries NEED to feed into the idea that we’re on our way to the next super-tech world, and I guess this kind of advertising works.
    I feel for the students going into debt for these degrees in superficial technologies. (Disney alone is purported to be/have been letting at least 700 animators go (previous digital arts students).
    Where will all the film investors and advertisers be when the stock market finally heads down, and businesses begin shutting their doors? Maybe I’m overly cynical but I can’t help but wonder when those days arrive… all the students out of waiter jobs, getting together to create rolling documentaries of how the great empire is falling… using handheld personal cams and youtube.

    That is one ugly building. It almost hurts the eyes to look at it. Just think of how the money spent to build it could’ve been used to build something energy friendly and with a little eye appeal. You’ve out done yourself this month fore sure ! However next month isn’t that far away.

    No self-respecting ivy would EVER climb this college building!

    When I saw it was built by Emerson College I first thought they had built that POS in Boston, which would have pissed me off, as such dreck does not belong there, But then I saw it was in LA, and that place has so many eyesores that one more will not make a difference, especially since LA will probably not survive long into the “Long Emergency”
