Gehry unveils design for mixed-use development on LA’s Sunset Strip

Gehry unveils design for mixed-use development on LA’s Sunset Strip | retail and design | Scoop.it

Architect Frank Gehry has conceived five distinct but interrelated buildings for a prominent site along LA's famous Sunset Strip.

Unveiled Wednesday, the design for 8150 Sunset Boulevard features five buildings that are united by a common plaza at street level. Public space is interwoven into the complex, which will encompass 334,000 square feet (31,000 square metres).

The site anchors the eastern end of the Sunset Strip and faces Hollywood Hills to the north. The development will have low heights along the street in order to relate in scale to nearby buildings. The area features architectural and cultural landmarks such as Chateau Marmot, a storied hotel meant to evoke a French estate, and the Art Deco-style Sunset Tower.

MARS Architects Cleverly Fold Climbing Walls into Bulgaria's First Sustainable Activity Center | retail and design | Scoop.it
MARS Architects snagged first place in an international competition for the design Walltopia's Collider Activity Center, Sofia's first sustainable mixed use center.

Located in Sofia, the Collider Activity Center will mark the city's first green mixed use center to combine both leisure and exercise space. To tie together the site’s diverse programs, the architects inserted a series of dramatic climbing atriums into the folds of the building, creating a continuous climbing experience.

Jon Carter's curator insight, January 4, 2014 4:22 PM

Super cool, gotta go to Sofia for this one. Deep Water solo outdoor pool, with boulder's galore in the park outside, not too mention a few K square ft of climbing inside. Outside walls are transparent showing climbers moves.. So nice.
