This is a 20-point chart showing Los Angeles buildings of architectural, cultural, or social importance, all of which were bulldozed or burned out of existence between 1929 and 2015. I’ve gone through a few phases while working on this project. At first I was into mid-century modern buildings, then brutalism, then the naive and flashy early 20th century cultural appropriation styles (think Egytian revival, Mayan revival, etc.). When working on 20 Lost Buildings of LA I was turned on to what’s known as “novelty architecture,” a form of building that LA excelled at producing. I had so much to choose from: a restaurant shaped like WWI trenches, an owl-shaped ice cream shop, a real estate office shaped like a sphynx, etc. Eventually I settled on the Bulldog Cafe on West Washington Blvd., a classic smoking dog demolished in 1966.
