  • At 150 feet tall, you should be able to see that sign from Las Vegas. Thanks, Bayarch, finally something subtle and low-key from the Left Coast.

  • Ummmm…..am I the only one that is disturbed by the use of acoustic tiles in a design rendering?

    21Ronin.com says:
  • Tasteless design, ironic-without-realizing-it, masses of plastic people congregating in awful spaces…. yep, this building is perfect for LA

    Oh, and when you destroy the old sign, scale it by 3x, and remove the iconic undulating positions of the letters, you aren’t “preserving” a landmark

    Max says:
  • Its not irregular like the signage, and far too big.

    simonalex says:
  • the comparison of the google hits is ridiculous…

    oliver says:
  • Very nice work bayarch…

    Klaus says:
  • what a crap………kill the world
    and yes……it most definitely is the final destruction of the hollywood (hills) sign and landmark turned into a piece of crap

    mcr says:
  • ?
    if you live/hike up there, you would know this would never happen!

    design-byproxy.com says:
  • This project is totally sensless…

    José-Richard Patiño says:
  • can’t visualize this happening but while living in l.a. you see many unimaginable things being happening before you eyes and some are a feast and sum pure garbage.

    lulu stewart says:
  • Los Angelinos should take a vote and the rest of the world will just have to live with it. After all they are the ones that are being represented by the sign.

    Anyway you look at it. LA represents a certain iconic aesthetic that is purely American and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Americans are pure crass no matter how many believe they are “hipsters.” Because if you have to label yourself anything you are not that!

  • Is it a totally green, carbon neutral, living building exceeding all green rating systems to date?
