L.A. Boulevards – latimes.com

Christopher Hawthorne, The Times architecture critic, takes readers on a tour of the historic boulevards of Los Angeles. Long dominated by the car culture, Lankershim, Crenshaw, Harbor, Sunset and Wilshire boulevards are gradually being remade to accommodate pedestrians, cyclists and urban street life.

Interesting that they chose Lot 36 as UCLA’s contribution to architecture on Wilshire blvd. If  Mr. Hawthorne was so adamant in using only architecture that borders Wilshire Blvd he could have used the UCLA Wilshire Center, it’s not much to look at, but it has to be more important than parking structure 36.

Lot 36

The Hammer Museum and UCLA’s Lot 36 serve as symbols of the university’s current and potential presence along the boulevard.
