KENT MOTEL, Los Angeles CA

It's a motel in the sense that they say it's one, and I won't disagree. Perhaps to some it just looks like a square unadorned thing with no particular attributes, but look closer: those huge canister light fixtures in the middle, echoed on the street-facing wall; the planters-on-sticks; the cafe on the second floor. Rather cool place.
