Friday, September 24, 2010 On Olive Hill

Detail of Frank Lloyd Wright's 1921 Hollyhock House, Hollywood Boulevard

Frank Lloyd Wright built his 1921 Hollyhock House on Olive Hill now Barnsdall Park Hollywood Boulevard at Vermont. So you have an arts park with a theater and galleries and an art school and gardens and all, with the Wright house in middle on the top of the hill always undergoing restoration as it's one of his "textile block" buildings. That Aztec-meets-Deco construction technique might have been a bad idea. But on a blazing hot September day it a good place to just sit and not move much. It's quiet. No tourists ever go there. And you can stare at things.
