It’s listed at #23 on Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas’s website page of ‘Architectural Sites that Define Our Community,’ but this month Culver City City Hall has shot to the top of the list by garnering the most votes by the public on the page.
That’s right, Culver City City Hall has been voted the favorite site for the month of March and Supervisor Ridley-Thomas proudly tweeted on Thursday, “For March, Culver City City Hall is our favorite site.”
The City Hall page not only includes a great description of the building but also a two and a half minute audio file discussing not only the beauty of City Hall but the extraordinary planning and functionality of Culver City as a whole.
Part of the written description on the site that praises City Hall includes the following description:
Although the building itself does not have a specific architectural style, its red-tiled roof and bright off-white walls evoke a Mediterranean flair that speaks to Southern California’s easy-going lifestyle and pleasant weather while also maintaining a connection to its history. Located on the west end of downtown, the city’s 87,900 – square-foot headquarters do more than provide a home to the municipal administration, departments and meetings. It creates a visual sense of peace and order. Dactylifera palm trees line its walkway, creating a verdant traffic pattern that gently connects visitors to the water fountain along a patio plaza, and a courtyard and abundant open space shield visitors from the noisy traffic along Culver Boulevard.
