Notes
Survey number HAER CA-174-P
Building/structure dates: 1951 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1990
Significance: The last of the research and development buildings completed at HAC's Culver City plant, Building 21 is starkly industrial in appearance. Nearly square in plan, the 50,000 sq ft, two story structure is of steel frame construction with a flat roof. It is clad with vertical corrugated steel panels and, like the other Gogerty designed buildings from the 1951-1952 period, the wall planes are framed by broad, boxed trim at the parapet and corners, and are broken at regular intervals by pipe downspouts. The structure is built on concrete pilings, with outer walls supported on concrete foundations.
