Inspired by the geometric details of the art deco architecture along the Wilshire corridor and in greater Los Angeles, Eamon Ore-Giron’s artwork concept for the glass entrance pavilion and escalator landing walls of this station references the past while looking toward the rapidly changing future of Los Angeles’s streetscape. Playing with perspective, the artwork’s sightlines, patterns and colors will energize the architecture of the station.
“Designed to be viewed from the windows of a traveling car, [the Wilshire corridor’s] architecture reflects the importance of the automobile and the changing technology of the early 20th century. The development of [this Metro line extension] represents the next step in the evolution of transportation in this city.”
