Moby was baffled by the strangeness and randomness of architecture in L.A., so he started a blog.

A while back we posted that Moby had started an architectural photography blog focused on Los Angeles. We recently discovered a couple of great videos of him talking about his interested in architecture, how the vernacular of L.A. architecture is “weird” and his review of several iconic structures in L.A.—from the Watts Towers, to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House, to the Gamble House as the arts and crafts movement on steroids. 

“When I came to L.A. I was baffled by the strangeness and randomness of architecture here. You go to Florence, you go to Paris, Rome, San Francisco, London…the great architecture, everybody knows about it, and it is kind of in the center of the city, where as in L.A. the great architecture is hidden, and it is weird, and that’s what led me to start my weird architecture blog.”
