Los Angeles - wideimaging

9800 South Sepulveda Blvd. Los Angeles, by Welton Becket 1964, borrows from the 1940 Palazzo della Civilta Italiana by Giovanni Guerrini, Ernesto Bruno La Padula and Mario Romano, that looks congruent with the 1939 New York World's Fair. It is ironic that Welton Becket would use this style while at the same time working on the far more futuristic looking General Electric Pavilion for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. The building 9800 South Sepulveda has sat vaccant for years, its only function is hanging building wrap supergraphics on the North and South sides that earn about $100K per month.
