Los Angeles’ iconic Hollywood sign is in a spot of bother. Private owners of the land around the sign are considering to sell their spaces to developers who many fear would use these areas commercially to build hotels or board up advertisements that might obscure the sign. To prevent this, the non-profit Public Trust For Lands group has stepped in and they are actively driving a campaign with a deadline to raise money for buying the land in question.
All legal issues aside, there is a Danish architect named Christian Bay-Jorgensen who has come up with a killer idea which he believes would solve the issue. He has proposed to convert the sign into a huge boutique hotel. In an interview he has expressed his desire to give this majestic structure an all new dimension. His plan is to make the hotel more touristic and even consider it as a possible venue for industry events like the Golden Globe and Oscar Award ceremonies. Though Christian’s vision (shown below) appears to be something that is not impossible at all, the general consensus among people in charge is that it is too far fetched an idea.
This hotel may not develop into anything more than an architect’s vision, but if it does we wouldn’t be complaining!
