MODERN FLETCHER HILLS: Leonard Veitzer's Wiener Residence (1969)

Friday June 28, 2013

Join us for an open house at the Gale and Ruth Sheldon Residence (1961) by Richard Lareau! This Sunday (6/30) between 11a-2p at 972 Wakefield Court 92020.

In 1946, Alvin Lustig designed a house in Silver Lake, for William H. Thomas, who soon went on to run James B. Lansing, Incorporated (or JBL), and for whom Lustig also designed brochures, speaker cabinets, and even a helicopter. Lost until now, it was the first example of Lustig's residential architecture, and one of only two houses he built. The new owners are logging their progress restoring this unique home HERE.

A small landmark of New York City architectural and automotive history disappeared recently, almost without notice. The theatrical auto showroom designed by Frank Lloyd Wright at 430 Park Avenue, at 56th Street, had displayed a number of European brands over the years, notably Mercedes-Benz from 1957 to 2012. Read more about this demolition HERE.


MODERN FLETCHER HILLS: I am very interested in finding this house! Anyone know where in Fletcher Hills this is?

Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 3 – or ‘Worldport’ - has long been a distinctive remnant of early jet travel and an emblem of Pan American World Airways. Last month, Delta closed Terminal 3 for good, after 53 years of service. Read how the National Trust for Historic Preservation has placed the terminal on its annual roster of America’s Most Endangered Places HERE.

G. Colton’s ‘Guest Buyers Series’ ask people who inspire them to go out and buy cool stuff on their dime. They recently asked our friends at Objects USA to shop on their behalf. Proceeds go to the Museum of California Design. Learn more HERE.
