Beaux Arts meets Art Deco

Zig-Zag Moderne Repurposed

Mission Revival, Revived

Renaissance Revival in the Roaring Twenties




The fusion of Beaux Arts classical elements and Art Deco - The Citizen Building, 9355 Culver Boulevard, in Culver City, near the old MGM studios - by the architectural firm of Orville E. Clark.  Construction began in 1928 (O'Hanlon and Flansburg) using local materials, supplies and labor.  Completed in 1929 and then the home of Citizen Publishers and Printers.  Think local newspapers.  The link has a detailed business history.  In 1987, it became the first structure in Culver City to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It's kind of cool.
