Also outside, mostly.
On the one hand: Lucasfilm's Sandcrawler Building, One-north, Singapore.
The eight-storey ‘Sandcrawler’ complex is designed to house the regional headquarters and production facility of the world renowned film and entertainment company.
On the other hand: Ryugyong Hotel exterior completed.
Several economic factors, not the least of which was the fall of the Soviet Union, disrupted construction, which has ceased until 2008, when Egyptian conglomerate Orascom Group (creepy website, right?) invested $400 million dollars to restart the project.
I am not even linking to Orascom Group. It is a creepy website.
The gripping hand: Walt Disney's estate in Los Feliz is for sale.
Located on a one-acre lot in the Los Feliz hills, the historic four bedroom, five bath French Normandy-style home was built by Walt Disney in 1932, and features painted ceilings, vaulted beamed ceilings, original stained leaded glass, billiards room, sleeping porch, swimming pool, and not surprisingly, a projection/screening room.
