Complex Love continues
this week with a reader submission. Santos of LA blog meet me at the corner of third and fairfax
wrote in about the 1928-built Trianon apartment building in Hollywood, originally commissioned by the hollywood couple of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks Jr:
"...the Trianon is one of my favourite apartment buildings in Los Angeles; it was was designed in 1928 by Leland Bryant, who is best known for the Sunset Tower/Argyle Hotel. Well, I suppose I don't just love the building (which seems well-cared for), I just really love the french chateaux-inspired architecture that is mixed in with all the other styles around town. I don't know what perpetuated it, but I suppose it was all a part of the fantasy of Hollywood."
