I’m still working my way backward from our stay in the Los Angeles area last week. We started the week in Costa Mesa where my husband had a conference for work, so on our last day there I wandered around the area a bit to kill some time and came across the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
This area consists of the Segerstrom Concert Hall designed by awarded architect Cesar Pelli (which is mainly what I photographed before security warned me to stop taking pics—still not quite sure why), a sculpture designed by Richard Serra called “Connector” (I managed to grab a couple shots of this too), Segerstrom Hall (an opera house), Samueli Theater, Founders Hall and the Arts Plaza. As you can tell, a pretty comprehensive arts area, which I, unfortunately, was unable to photograph as much as I would have liked. Still, I think I got some images of the building I most liked in the area, so it was a good morning. The curves of the Concert Hall remind me of the Getty Center (up next!) and seem common in the Los Angeles area in general.
I’ll apologize in advance for the similarities in all these images, but it was too fun playing with all the curvy lines of this building!
