Colorful Pacific Design Center Seen Best from Helicopter Tour
Our private Los Angeles tour guests cannot help but stare when we drive them past the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Three eye-catching glass buildings designed by César Pelli. Blue, green and red glass. Interconnected. But to really see them, the best view is aboard one of our helicopter adventure tours where our guests are treated to a the sight of the three extraordinary buildings beside one another like 3D puzzle pieces strewn into the orderliness of West Hollywood. Walking through the buildings is equally enjoyable, seeing the latest in interior design elements and concepts, furniture and appliances. We think of it more as a museum of colors, surfaces and house features than as a wholesale store for designers and builders. The fact that the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) has an outpost on the 14 acre grounds seems perfectly fitting. We like to drop in about lunch time to eat at one of Wolfgang Puck‘s two restaurants (Spectra and red|seven).
West Hollywood really offers some wild new architecture. The Pacific Design Center (PDC) has always been eyecatching with its blue and green geometrically shaped glass buildings and the fanciful and appropriate public art displayed throughout the property. Now the red structure is complete and truly complements the existing structures. Our private luxury sightseeing tours through Hollywood and Beverly Hills reveal lots of interesting Los Angeles architecture. The Pacific Design Center certainly piques our guests’ attention when we pass by or fly over (you can’t miss the PDC on a helicopter tour of Los Angeles).
The new West Hollywood Public Library across the street does not turn heads in the same way though inside the building you are treated to a masterfully designed and practical use of space dedicated to reading, information and the exchange of ideas. More important, you can look up from your text and enjoy the sight of the Pacific Design Center.
