The Umbrella in Culver City, Los Angeles was originally designed as an outdoor performance balcony for a series of experimental concerts put on by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, called 'The Green Umbrella'. With the Disney Concert Hall bringing all Philharmonic activity to downtown, the Umbrella became an office building for an internet company. This project is one of Eric Owen Moss' first experiments in the use of laminated glass, something he continued to explore in later projects.
