Sometimes, late at night, everything becomes clear. Your vision unclouds and the world makes perfect sense. Tonight was one of those nights. Driving back home from Echo Park, we encoutered the Gershwin Hotel Hollywood (5533 Hollywood Boulevard). It was the face of post-(post-Fordism) or whatever name this period will have: naked, raw and pure. Enough said. You'll have to visit. Preferably late at night. But make sure you club your car.
An update: according to the Gershwin Hotel people, the hotel isn't finished yet. The interior spaces will be designed by Karim Rashid and a Totem store will be located on the first level.
