Project Description

Comedy Hall of Fame
The project goal was to create a Comedy Hall of Fame located in the sports and entertainment district of Los Angeles, California. The study focused on how branding can lead to globalization and the creation of an icon for the city of Los Angeles and for comedy. After studying Robert Venturi’s idea of “Duck Architecture,” the concept of a slipping on a banana peel symbolically stood as an icon for comedy. Duck Architecture is controversial in design; however, the same can be said about comedy. Comedy is subjective to the viewer’s like and dislikes. There are only a few times one is able to have fun with a design, and the Comedy Hall of Fame was one of those projects.
