"Art's a Trip" Red Line Metro Rail Tour (Part 1)

Hollywood/Highland Station

 

2000

Sheila Klein, artist

Dworsky Associates, architects

 

The concrete station box has been transformed by this team into a telescoping, organic form where rhythmic breaks in the walls and ceiling panels reveal structural supports; in much the same way, movie or theater production stage sets, or the nearby Hollywood sign, are facades held in place.

 

Sculptural forms are attached like organisms to the platform columns and boldly illuminate the station’s cavity. One has the sense of being in the depths of a giant creature.
