The Amazing Clark Library, Part 1 of 3
[As part of the remit to make the Untold LA iPad Book available to as many people as possible I'll be posting photos from the book in sequential order on a regular basis until all of them are online.]
On Pages 75-87 of the Kinney Heights Chapter we look at the amazing Clark Library. Designed in 1926 by architect Robert Farquhar in the Renaissance Revial style, the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library is run by UCLA and occupies an entire block of Kinney Heights.
Above you can see one of the outdoor seating areas in the Clark; below is the front exterior - you may notice a slight moiré pattern in the photo below, one of only two instances of this in the Book, brought about by the repetitive use of bricks in the facade and absence of an anti-aliasing filter in the X-Pro 1 Camera used to shoot Untold LA.
Below are some more photos of the Clark, including a closer look at the statues found on the grounds. Over the next two days we'll go inside the Library and as well as take a look at a production of Oscar Wilde's Lady Windemere's Fan staged there.
