"Made in the Shade" for 608 Silver Spur


Back in Palos Verdes, on the main business street, the Edler building got a face lift & probably some internal upgrades from the late '60s architectural style a couple of years ago. The place used to be the old California Federal building up the road from the Red Onion restaurant seen in the '70s photo posted here.

I'm not sure I'd like to work in this building. It doesn't appear to have any windows! Or is that see-through material?

I don't think the 60's and 70's will ever be regarded as a time of great architecture in the US. That said, I do like the screening panels on this building - I wonder if they are original to the building or added later.

I'd like to know something more about those panels. I hope, as Antjas says, that it is see-through material.

That is an interesting design! I suppose the panels keep the light out though.

It also served as a campus for some classes offered as part of Cal State Dominguez Hills first year(s). My older brother took a class in journalism from noted LA Times author Charles Hillinger there.

I bet it was uninteresting to began with. Maybe you can sneak in and get a closer view of the material used to make those panels.

The facade material has been added recently, to cover the "old" design of the building.
This material offers a really good see through.
It's manufactured by a company from France called FERRARI and this product is their STAMISOL FT381 facade mesh.
