One thought on “Weekly Roundup: Laurel 42, Fair-Haired Dumbbell, Portland Building, and more

  1. If ever a site called out for mediocrity, it’s the dreary patch of gravel next to a parking lot where panhandlers set up at the freeway off ramp in Hollywood. This building reads as a mere assemblage of off the shelf parts with elevations and massing being merely an artifact of its internal parti. I am pretty disappointed to see a lot of this coming out of LRS these days. I’m not sure who did it, but an almost identical building just went up at the SE corner of N Vancouver & Cook. This kind of building is all too common in Seattle, but in a city with such a strong design culture, we really should strive for better.
