Googie Architecture

How about a little Googie architecture? A modern, futuristic form of design influenced by the Space Ages. Freaky designs that were all about turning heads. I feel like it's a love/hate style. Here are a few of the last ones standing. Most have been destroyed over the years as many have not been that impressed.



Born in LA, the style took off with the glitz of Hollywood. It blew up on the west coast and slowly headed east. Sharp angles, swooping roof lines, huge cantilevers and over the top colors. It was all about the flash. You can also check this out at my weekly guest home, Fred Flare.
