Vespertine Culver City Building, L.A.

A preliminary study model made from a square pile of note paper, describes a concept for a tower which is not quite a regular box, nor a clear, spatial departure from the regular box. Rather the model suggests a conceptually soft geometry, or better, a twisted tower.

That proposal was originally studied as glass in the 10 Towers proposal. The proposed horizontal and vertical ‘fins’ and the glazing enclosure system – all straight lines – were thoroughly evaluated. Glazing components were never curved, so the curving surfaces were always conveyed as the aggregate of a sequence of straight lines that continually shifted position across the four tower elevations.

The internal structural frame closely follows the exterior shape. Four corner columns undergo a series of compound miters to reflect the curving form. The building consists of a ground floor, a mezzanine, a second floor, and a covered roof deck connected by and internal stair and elevator.

A secondary support building will be built just to the west of the site. Directly adjacent to the building is a garden made up of undulating grass mounds and a series of concrete benches and tables. Directly to the north of the building, a ditch made up of concrete blocks contains a pool of water that raises and lowers throughout the day.
