Ode to Los Angeles Part II: Farewell Architecture

     Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?
    -Jack Keroac, On the Road
    Don't think I won't miss you Los Angeles...
    When your architecture can look like this:

    So for now....

    Goodbye Pierre and your Case Study Homes
    Goodbye Louis and your Salk Institute
    Goodbye Richard and your hard to get into Health House
    Goodbye Frank and your Californian experiments
    Goodbye Greene and Greene Brothers
    So long Coop Himmelb(l)au with your un-occupiable symbolism
    and crazy classrooms
    Goodbye Bradbury Building
    And Buck House doorknobs
    So long Bullocks Wilshire Building and your awesome light inlays
    And farewell to you, Perloff Hall

    I'll see you in Berlin, Filosofers!
