Decay of Hollywood: 1978 via Retronaut

“The sign, erected in 1923, originally read “HOLLYWOODLAND” to advertise the name of a new housing development. Over the course of more than half a century, the sign, designed to stand for only 18 months, had deteriorated. In 1978, in large part because of a public campaign by Alice Cooper (who donated the missing O), the Chamber set out to replace it with a more permanent structure”


Innovative copper staircase goes beyond the limits of design

The development of the perforated timber-copper sandwich panels required close collaboration with the manufacturers and a series of samples and full scale mock-ups were essential to develop a solution which was technically feasible and supported the design intent of a seamless and continuous copper skin. The detailed design of the complex structure is based on a limited set of panel types and interface geometries to allow for a consistent appearance and an efficient procurement. The installation is sequenced in such a way that the structural panels interlock with each other and a delicate substructure to minimize visible connections.
