Los Angeles Architecture Tours: Kentucky Fried Chicken: Grinstein/Daniels Architects, 1989


Though Programmatic Architecture had its heyday in the mid 20th century, Grinstein/Daniels Architects revived the concept of architecture representative of its function in this most interesting Kentucky Fried Chicken -the building looks like a bucket of fried chicken.  Built in 1989, this Kentucky Fried Chicken is an architectural statement not often seen in the world of fast food.  Glass walls on the ground floor, where the food is ordered and prepared, allow a considerable amount of light into the building. The upper floor, with tall ceilings and indirectly lit by five louvred windows,  is reserved for dining. The building itself occupies only a fraction of the overall site to allow for customer parking, a common feature of automobile-centric Los Angeles.
