The Parking Meter Building

September 9, 2009

MVC-012FThe Henry Medina, West Los Angeles, Parking Enforcement Facility was designed (by Nadel Architects Inc.) to resemble a parking meter.  It is on Sepulveda Blvd.  one traffic light south of Pico Blvd.  Note the “coin slot” on the left side of the building and the hours across the top to suggest one of those 12 hour meters you see in some place.

Note we specifically went there and took this picture so that we can send it in as a suggestion to the roadside America folks who are looking for tips.

Maybe if we give them several good tips we can get them started on doing another site for Roadside Australia?  Who says the World’s Laziest Journalist doesn’t do any traveling?

The hours are embossed across the top of the “dial.”  Below is a detail of the “coin slot” to the left of the “parking meter’s face.”
