ARCHITECT ELDON DAVIS: 1917 – 2011: HE DESIGNED OUR FAVORITE PLACES


Los Angeles celebrates the Googie style in coffee shops, and Eldon Davis, an architect who gave us many space age mid-century designs, has died at the age of 94. Architects Davis and Louis Armet opened a local firm in 1947 and pioneered in creating numerous delightful buildings that appeared to defy gravity – many of which have been destroyed. Davis is credited with popularizing what became known as coffee shop modern, and he felt free to take it to extremes because California was “open to new ideas.” Our favorite – Pann’s coffee shop built in 1958 in Inglewood, is a prime example of his work and has been lovingly preserved. You’ve seen it in countless movies. And the food is really good too.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
