Architecture: A dramatic makeover in Lafayette Park
It is also a dramatic example of how old and new architecture can fit agreeably together. The design by Kanner and his colleagues at Kanner Architects helped revive a 1963 barrel-vaulted building -- originally a senior center -- by the Glendale architect Graham Latta.
The new complex, which attaches a gymnasium to the older building, is shown above. A photograph of the Latta senior center before the new construction is after the jump.
