02i Hollywood and Vine Station - Station Ceiling made from Film Reels (E)

Metro Red Line Station

Hollywood and Vine, Los Angeles, CA

___________

 

The Hollywood and Vine Station is one of my favorite stations in the Los Angeles Metro system. A yellow brick road leads patrons from the street down to a mezzanine level where there are two Peerless 1930's era projectors donated by Paramount Pictures. All the doors of the station have stars on them, to remind peoplle of stage dressing-room doors.

 

The columns that support the station are designed to look like palm trees that hold up a ceiling covered in empty film rolls, which give the appearance of stars at night. The walls on either end of the station a covered with tile to look like movie screens and curtains. The artist of the station was Gilbert “Magu” Lujan in collaboration with Miralles Associates, Inc.

 

With the building of the W Hotel, a cover was built over the station by Rios Clementi Hale Studios. The steel and glass structure enhances the "yellow" of the yellow brick road theme.

 

All-in-all it's a fun station worth seeing.
