Seeing this sign at Dana Point Harbor reminded me of the extinction of a #surfing era known as Killer Dana. It happened in 1966 when the first boulder of the breakwater was dropped. It was completed in 1971.
Designed by architect William Pereira (1909-1985) and built by Del E. Webb in 1965, the four-story Ahmanson Building at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is an iconic example of Los Angeles’ 1960s modernist architecture.
One of three original buildings (it was originally called The Lytton Gallery until 1968) at LACMA, it is slated to be torn down and replaced with an entirely new complex of buildings and exhibition spaces.
On a recent visit, the exhibition spaces within the building had been closed in anticipation of its demolition in 2020. Adieu.
