The Northwest Corner

A history of the most famous corner in Hollywood; the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. Turns out that famed modernist architect Richard Neutra made no less than two discrete designs for this corner. One from 1926, is a complete mystery, but looks as if it could be a candidate for construction on this site even TODAY! In the course of researching this history because of an error in my book, “The Neutras, Then & Later” where I illustrate dad’s 1933 design for Carl Laemmle, I discovered a host of images showing what happened at this corner starting all the way back to the early 1900s. Travel back in time with us, and enjoy!
