Design Elements

South Pasadena is known for its classic homes -- from Craftsman to Victorian -- but it also has its fair share of modern architecture. Like here, for example. I can't quite see the house, but every time I pass this driveway I look to see if the fountain is working. So far? Not working.

Oh well, sometimes form trumps function.

The cascading shrubbery softens and makes the whole idea a bit less linear. What I find most interesting are the muted shades of yellow, sand and gray. What building is this?

I LOVE contemporary architecture... but LA, I think you may have spoiled me with all of your magical shots of Craftsman and Victorian homes. This one looks like all its magic drained away years ago. I think I'd rather live inside those pink bushes in your recent post than here.

Form, fit, & function... the mantra of every engineer's task. Two out of three?

Thanks, you guys!

Judy, this is a private home with a long driveway. I can't see the house from the street -- but I always see this dry fountain.

Leslie, I didn't get your email!!!??? laurieallee at yahoo dot com (It's not in my spam folder, either. Curious. I'll track down your email addy and send you one.)

I did a little photography around the moderns recently and had some woman in a pink pant suit start running after my car. I may post that video.
