As I've already mentioned, I have a curious fascination with Googie-themed architecture and motifs. A short film titled, "Chris Nichols: Googieman" has been around now for some years. Nonetheless, I always enjoy watching it over and over. I admire Chris Nichols and his preservation efforts. Sadly, many of these offbeat architectural gems are vanishing as they are demolished in favor of newer (and mostly bland) structures. I believe preservation is important!
The film shows a few of southern California's celebrated landmarks such as, Pann's Coffee Shop, Covina Bowl, and (my favorite) John Lautner's often imitated Chemosphere. Please enjoy, and then get involved with a local preservation group!
