Post-War Sketches

from the drawing boards of

S. CHARLES LEE



The West Coast has always been famed for its spectacular and theatrical architectural achievements and, as this particular architect has been one of the leaders and one of the most active in that area, his current sketches will warrant careful inspection.

Again benefited by the mildness of climate and the resultant adaptability of stucco, porcelain, glass, and plastics over a comparatively lightweight struc ture, some of the idea values would be prohibitively expensive to build or maintain in more northern climes or in smoky and dirty large cities. For the areas for which-they are intended, however, they can be constructed and maintained economically and their attention-attracting qualities are obvious. Certainly no passer-by could observe any of these spectacular fronts without being conscious of the theatre.

THIS THEATRE IS DESIGNED FOR A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD OF MODERN CHARACTER AND WILL BE BUILT OF GLASS AND STONE, AND WILL BE EQUIPPED WITH ALL THE LATEST IDEAS FOR EFFICIENT OPERATION.
