OK, so how much of my trad architecture cred do I lose by saying that I love this Jetsons-Googie-Jet Age-swoopy-blobby work? Has SHAG ever had an art show here? If not, why not?

First, a few shots of the exterior.

Here’s the courtyard surrounding entrance.

The elevator ride up plays some fun mid-century lounge music. If the interior looks a bit Tomorrowland to you that’s because it was renovated by Walt Disney Imagineering in 1997.

    I think it looked more seventies without the neon colored lights inside. Although I do like the large lava lamp.
