With a hybridized civic orientation that blends an L.A. sensibility with a more cosmopolitan urban tradition, the new Caltrans District 7 Headquarters building in downtown Los Angeles is perceptually of the fabric of the city, as opposed to being a singular object or ornament. Enrobed in a constantly changing mechanical skin that is alternately open or closed depending on the conditions of outside temperature and sunlight, the building's fundamental property is that of transformation.





At dusk the building is transparent -textured and windowed everywhere to invite the voyeur- while at mid-day it is buttoned up against the sun, appearing to be devoid of windows entirely. At night, the dark facade seems to recede in favor of the outside lobby's four-story-high light sculpture. Mimetic of the larger metropolis, this building will be perceived differently by each observer depending on his or her experience with it.

Inside, normative office culture is challenged by the reversal of floor-plan layout and the incorporation of skip-stop elevators that call for the use of large, centrally located stairwell lobbies. More aptly understood as movement intensification, the stairwell lobbies create access/egress patterns that encourage familiarity and exchange while aspiring to mitigate the probability of departmental balkanization.
