Union 76 Gas Station

Gin Wong from Willian L. Pereira & Associates (architect of San Francisco’s Transamerica Pyramid) sketched this parabolic concrete roof for the Los Angeles International airport. Instead, it became a gas station canopy and took flight over Beverly Hills in 1965. Fluorescent tubes mounted underneath and a frieze of red squares around the edge underscore the swooping UFO vibe.

Collector Perk: Signed copy of ‘Gas and Glamour’ book, featured in Los Angeles Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian among others.
